Purple (North) vs. Texas (Royal) Highlights

9/23/2018

Chase Pendley (2021 SS, Celina, TX) did a nice job of getting his arms extended in his first trip to the plate, lining a pitch on the outer half into center field to lead things off.

Reid Taylor (2020 RHP, Woden, TX) is an uncommitted junior who showed a low effort and loose arm action o the mound, running his fastball up to 88 mph. The fastball shows running life to it at times and he mixed in an 11-5 shaped curveball with depth up to 76 mph.

Ty Mongo (2019 OF, Lantana, TX) got a fastball he could handle and squared the pitch up for one of the harder base hits on the day, lining the pitch back up the middle for a loud single before swiping a base and coming around to score, it was his second hit of the day.

Cole Van Poppel (2020 RHP, Rotan, TX) logged three innings on the mound for the Purple squad, living comfortably in the low-80s while mixing both a curveball and changeup. He also picked up a pair of single into the opposite field, one being a line drive.

Murphy Brooks (2022 RHP, Cypress, TX) is physically advanced for a player who just entered high school and he showed a big fastball too, topping out at 87 mph while living in the low- to mid-80s. The pitch showed some cutting life and the changeup he offered showed fading life down in the zone.

Travis White (2021 C, Mountain Home, TX) picked up a hard single back up the middle in his final at-bat of the event, squaring the pitch with an exit velocity off 89 mph off the bat.

East (Col. Blue) vs. Red (South)

9/23/2018

On the first pitch of the game Drake Varnado (2021 SS, Port Neches, TX) took an 82 mph fastball and got his arms extended, blasting the pitch to the warning track for an easy stand up double.

Jeffrey Diamond (2019 RHP, Hattiesburg, MS) made a quick impression on the mound, punching out the side in his first inning work while topping out at 86 mph. He showed plenty of arm speed through the back and mixed both a tight slider and a curveball with depth for strikes.

Michael Machin (2019 C, Miami Lakes, FL) continued to swing it well and picked up another base hit, as well as an RBI, as he stayed on a curveball and barreled it through the 6-hole for a single.

Scott Siebenthall (2020 C, Corpus Christi, TX) got his hands extended on a fastball at 81 mph on the outer half and lined the pitched to the right of the second base bag for a leadoff single. He picked up another single later in the game giving him a multi-hit performance.

Alec Grossman (2021 RHP, Austin, TX) ran his fastball up to 86 mph for the Red team, showing a quick arm through the back. More impressive however was his changeup, an upper-70s pitch with which he maintained his arm speed and showed nice fading life down in the zone.

Kai St Germaine (2019 RHP, Plymouth, MI) did a nice job of living down in the zone with his fastball, generating short running life while topping out at 86 mph. He offered a full array of secondaries and was able to land them all for strikes.

Augustus Gray Harrison (2020 RHP, Austin, TX) showed a clean and fluid arm action through the back side, topping out at 88 mph with more in the tank. Along with the downhill plane he was able to generate, Gray Harrison was able to create hard running life to his arm side and flashed a tight curveball too.

West (White) vs. Houston (Gray) Highlights

9/23/2018

Cody Howard (2021 RHP, Conroe, TX) went three innings on the mound for the West and settled in nicely throughout his outing. With a fastball up to 87 mph, Howard showed a loose and projectable arm action while spinning a slider up to 75 mph and a curveball with depth in the low-70.

Victor Loa (2021 LHP, Los Fresnos, TX) countered Howard and showed well throughout his three frames as well. The young lefthander showed a balanced set of mechanics and repeated his delivery well, creating cut action on his fastball which topped out at 84 mph while living down in the zone.

Wyatt Nelson (2020 SS, Los Angeles, CA) got West on the board early with an RBI single, taking a fastball into the opposite field to plate the first run of the game.

Thatcher Habhab (2020 C, League City, TX) took a fastball that was running in on his hands and drove it to the pull side gap well for a stand up double, advancing to third base on the throw.

Jared Plank (2019 RHP, Houston, TX) continued the impressive run of arms, topping out at 90 mph which is the best of the event to this point. Currently uncommitted, Plank worked two innings on the mound and developed a nice feel for his curveball showing late bite down in the zone and flashed a nice fading changeup too.

Samuel Benjamin (2020 1B, Katy, TX) got a fastball on the inner half that he could handle as he put the barrel to the ball and drove it to deep center field for a stand up double.

Batting Practice Highlights

9/22/2018

Hunter Cramer (2020 SS, Conroe, TX) is already committed to Arkansas and the young righthanded hitter showed while during his round of batting practice. Cramer swings with intent and looks to impact the ball, staying direct to the ball with whip to his barrel, showing hard line drive contact off the barrel when extended out front.

A strongly built lefthanded bat, Jordan Phillips (2019 C, Pasadena, TX) utilizes a high leg lift trigger and while he can continue to simplify, still showed interesting components in the box. He shows quickness to his hands with a shorter swing overall, creating lift out front with present bat speed and jump off the barrel when squared.

A primary shortstop out of Texas, Juan Solis (2020 SS, Clute, TX) showed quickness to his hands and did a nice job of creating lift in his path at the point of contact. His timing developed nicely throughout his round, showing fluidity to his swing and a rather simple set of mechanics overall.

Samuel Benjamin (2020 1B, Katy, TX) showed one of the more fluid rounds of the day, remaining balanced throughout his lefthanded swing. With loose hands, the uncommitted Benjamin showed a simple swing with extension and leverage out front while handling the barrel well during his round.

Dax Ford (2019 LHP, Luling, LA) may be listed as a primary lefthanded pitcher but the strongly built lefthanded bat made a loud impression in the box as well. His swing is both fast and fluid and his hands are loose, all resulting in loud impact at the point of contact while getting separated and extended at the point of contact with plenty of leverage.

Kellum Clark (2020 1B, Jackson, MS) has been on the national scene for a little bit and his round of batting practice Saturday did nothing but reaffirm his abilities in the lefthanded batter’s box. Remaining balance, the Mississippi State commit showed looseness to his hands and took an easy round of BP, impacting the baseball with a low effort swing with big jump off the barrel.

Michael Machin (2019 C, Miami Lakes, FL) packs plenty of strength into his hands and his round of batting practice proved to be a precursor to his game swings. He did a nice job of staying short and quick to the swing, remaining direct while getting extended out front with a simple, repeatable set of mechanics.

Drake Varnado (2021 SS, Port Neches, TX) continued to show his two-way potential on day one of the event. A South Carolina commit, Varnado is able to generate solid present bat speed through the zone with quick hands and showed steady barreled contact with lift to his swing at the point of impact.

Ty Mongo (2019 OF, Lantana, TX) showed off some interesting ingredients in the box that project with some refinements to his swing. With a line drive approach, Mongo shows present bat speed and a short swing overall while getting the barrel to it well.

Travis White (2021 C, Mountain Home, TX) begins with an open stance in the box and utilizes a simple trigger to remain on time with his swing. With a linear path, White did a nice job of repeating his swing and gets the barrel out front while showing quickness to his hands and compact swing overall through the zone.

Devin Soliz (2020 1B, Riverside, CA) is a strong and broad shouldered first baseman who knows how to incorporate his physical strength into his righthanded swing. Staying short and direct to the ball, Soliz shows strength to his hands and leverage to his path with interesting power off the barrel.

Josh Livingston (2021 3B, Prosper, TX) may be a rising sophomore but the young third baseman packs plenty of strength into his lefthanded swing. He shows an easy and balanced set of mechanics with a loose swing and consistent extension out front, shows jump off the barrel.

Like Livingston above, shortstop Ryan Leary (2021 SS, Liberty Hill, TX) is a rising sophomore and put together a nice round of batting practice before swinging it well in live action. While he projects well physically Leary already shows fluidity and extension to his swing path, exhibiting quick hands while remaining balanced throughout his swing.

Billy Decker (2019 3B, The Woodlands, TX) employs a simple shift in the righthanded batter’s box with a short and simple swing which he repeated nicely from swing to swing. Though he’ll occasionally get to his front side early Decker still showed the ability to drive the ball to the pull side gap with nice jump coming off the barrel.

A switch-hitter, Heriberto Emmanuel Garza (2021 C, Rio Grande, TX) showed contact skills from both sides of the plate, taking his best round from the right side. He was able to create some loft at the point of contact, getting extended while creating carry to his pull side.

Gage Boehm (2020 1B, Taylor, TX), a Texas commit, is an imposing righthanded batter when he digs into the box and he’s able to incorporate that physical strength nicely into his swing. Staying short and compact with his swing, Boehm was able to generate extension and generate big jump off the barrel with carry to his pull side.

James Kobylt (2019 3B, Los Angeles, CA) is a strongly built third baseman who is already committed to Washington and showed off skills with the bat from the right side. He keeps his hands tight through his swing and gets the barrel through the zone well and consistently to the ball, showing jump coming off with backspin to his pull side.

Brady Patterson (2021 C, Auburn, KS) is another rising sophomore who made the trip out from Kansas and put together a nice round with tools that will only continue to project. While there are some moving parts to his swing he does a nice job of staying compact and is able to generate carry of the barrel when extended, showing some lift at the point of contact.

Trey Harrison (2019 1B, Chandler, AZ) is a long and projectable 6-5/180 with long levers but he did a nice job of staying short to the baseball while creating present bat speed through the zone. He swings with intent and looks to impact the baseball, shows carry to the pull side when squared up and on time.

Lucas Bates (2019 OF, Riverside, CA) is strongly built at 6-2/195 pounds and he knows how to incorporate that strength nicely into his swing, showing some of the more interesting raw power on the day. He stayed mostly linear with his swing and showed present bat speed through the zone, generating back spin back up the middle to deep center field.
