2006 Mid-Atlantic Underclass Showcase
2008 Top Prospects
- OF - 2008 - Elmira, NY
At 6-foot-4 and 220 pounds, Thurber has a big build and is capable of producing outstanding power from the left side of the plate. He is also a very aggressive hitter and also has some potential on the mound, as well. Thurber projects as a highest-level college prospect.
- MIF - 2008 - Millersville, MD
While he played primarily infield at the showcase, Beck shows outstanding promise as a pitcher. He topped out at 86 mph on the mound and showed a great 12-to-6 curveball with sharp bite. Beck will be a highest-level college prospect.
- RHP - 2008 - Oakdale, CT
Lowery was one of the most projectable players at the event. With a lean 6-foot-4 frame, he looks like he could gain a lot of velocity to his 84 mph fastball. He has a loose arm and good feel and command of three pitches.
- RHP - 2008 - Richmond, VA
McCann showed great feel for pitching at the showcase, topping out at 83 mph with a long, loose arm action. He has a good downhill plane on his pitches and a good feel for his off-speed pitches. Charlie should fill into his frame and could easily see his velocity spike in the high 80s.
- RHP - 2008 - Newport News, VA
Much like Lowery, Borden was a very projectable righthanded pitcher. He touched 84 mph with a short, loose arm action and great life on his fastball. His off-speed stuff is developing and he could evolve into a solid college pitcher.
- LHP - 2008 - Akron, OH
A potential two-way player in college, Jones raised eyebrows after throwing 87 mph from the outfield. He has a simple lefthanded swing and topped at 83 mph on the mound.
- 1B - 2008 - Virginia Beach, VA
With a 6-foot-4, 250-pound frame, Hall looks like he could easily be dominating on the football field as well as the baseball field. At the plate, he has a short, simple swing that produces huge raw power and the ability to drive the ball to all fields. He shows a strong arm at first base and has the raw power potential that will equate into being a solid college first baseman.
2009 Top Prospects
- RHP - 2009 - Glen Allen, VA
Griffith showed a very polished game in the field and at the plate. Offensively, he keeps his hands inside the ball and produced consistent line-drive contact with quick wrists. He is a very smooth fielder and has an accurate arm to go along with a smooth release and nice hands.
- MIF - 2009 - Chesapeake, VA
Serafine showed all the tools needed to succeed as a middle infielder. He is a very polished fielder with a solid arm and good range in the field. At the plate, he drives the ball hard keeping his hands inside the ball with good bat speed.
2010 Top Prospects
- C - 2010 - Chesterfield, VA
With a pop time of 1.96 seconds and velocity of 78 mph behind the plate, you would be hard pressed to find many better catch-and-throw backstops better than Ayers. He threw a runner out with a 2.00 pop time during the game and could become one of the top defensive catchers in this whole class.
- LHP - 2010 - Colonial Heights, VA
Cullen was one of the top two-way players at the showcase, despite being only in eighth grade. He showed a great feel for pitching with nice life to his fastball and a good assortment of off-speed pitches, while topping at 77 mph. At the plate he had good pop in his swing and great bat speed for his age. Cullen also runs well and plays a solid outfield.
2011 Top Prospects
- SS - 2011 - Chesterfield, VA
One of the youngest players at the showcase, Aers showed talent well beyond his years. He showed a nice approach at the plate, with good bat speed and the ability to keeps his hands inside the ball well. He was a smooth fielder and could turn into one of the better players in his class.
