Once again, the SFCBL was full of talent and competitiveness alike as a mix of current and incoming collegiate athletes competed against many fellow South Florida natives for a chance at a South Florida League title. This year’s league was made up of 407 players from six different countries and 30 different states including players from every level of college baseball with the Division-I level making up over half of the league’s players. While the West Boca Snappers took home the regular season title with a record of 25-11, it was the sixth-seeded Boca Raton Blazers that took home the title, their first ever in the league. Each of the two games they won in the championship series were settled by a single run and Daniel Labrador was named the MVP of the series after going 4-for-8 with a big three-run home run.

Various league-wide awards were handed out to prospects on the following top prospect list for their standout performances throughout the season. Ryan Magdic took home Player of the Year honors for his breakout season on the offensive end as he led the league in RBIs (27), home runs (6) and extra-base hits (20). Cole Stasio was tabbed the Pitcher of the Year as his 1.26 ERA was a good one to go with 35 strikeouts in his 35 innings on the year. Incoming college freshmen Brant Smith and Tyler Rapf won Rookie of the Year honors for their standout performance as youngsters while Joseph Encarnacion won defensive player of the year, Ethan Bates won reliever of the year, Jeff Manto won the utility player award and Kelsey Ward won the most improved player with big-time strikeout numbers against low walks given out.

*Incoming Freshman

1. Devin Futrell, LHP, Delray Beach Lightning (Vanderbilt/2024 Draft Eligible)
Futrell checks in as the top prospect here, not because of the present stuff, but simply due to the upside that he could very well mold into a first rounder when all is said and done in 2024. He’s a long and projectable 6-foot-5, 195-pound left-hander who comes out of the high school ranks already working into the low-90s with the fastball while both commanding it well and adding some deception given his long levers working to release. It’s a very clean arm stroke and there’s a level of polish to the delivery already which gives him the ease to his velocity and the ability to repeat, which paired with the fact that he throws a very good changeup in the low-80s and has come along well with what was already a solid slider, gives him a true starter’s profile for the collegiate level and eventually beyond.
