Latest Showcase Report
2001 Midwest Fall Classic   Sep 29, 2001
PG Grade: 8
Over all Towles would grade out as the best catcher at this showcase. He is quick as a cat, has a plenty strong arm and knows what he's doing. He is fairly athletic for a catcher. He also showed some good hitting ability and as he gets stronger watch out for some power. This kid can play and he plays with some life.
