2001 National Showcase  
Upton is the #1 tools player in America for next years draft. It could be argued that he is a true 5 tool shortstop. BJ is a graceful athlete who can do just about anything on a baseball field. His arm ranks right up there with anyone playing shortstop in the big leagues. He might be the first position player picked next June.
