Horizon HS v. Desert Ridge HS. Both are defending state champions in their respective divisions. Horizon's Nick Valenza LHP will face off vs. DR's Scot Hoffman RHP in a battle of two of the state's hardest throwers. Both have touched 93 in the past.

Horizon/Desert Ridge was a one sided affair as Horizon defeated a graduation depleted Ridge team 7-2. Nick Valenza LHP started the game off in the 90-91 range, but a bit wild. He got out of a jam early and cruised from there. Scot Hoffman was the victim of a few errors, which led to unearned runs. A good twenty scouts were on hand for this one. Valenza was a nice surprise today and had some scouts chirping a bit.

I saw Florida last weekend and everyone was throwing gas. Whitson (95), Gibson (94), Johnson (92), Desclafani (92), Crawford (92), Pantielodis (91). Im sure Maddox and the others were 90+ as well....just flat out scary to me.

watched Horizon (AZ) v. Mountain Pointe (AZ) this past weekend. Kevin Cron and Jordan Dunatov attracted close to 30 scouts. Dunatov's pregame throws from center were impressive and a great show. 94 on one scout's gun. Cron hit a ball about 425ft in the game. Dunatov had a 3B off the wall. Fun game to watch with nice prospects.

Horizon and Chaparral met in the 5A-II semis, where Horizon had to beat Chap twice. Chap took down Horizon earlier in the tournament 12-11 in 9 Innings. Horizon beat Chaparral in the first game on Thursday 5/12 to force a game 2. haparral came back in the 6th inning and beat Horizon 8-6. Probably the best 3 games I have seen in high school in terms of excitement on both sides. Big time rivals going at it. Chaparral finally got to Nik Valenza of Horizon who was throwing 92-93 in the 6th, but Chap was ready for it and got a few base hits off him. Chaparral faces underdog Perry High in the Finals.

Very surprised on the inaccuracy of a number of az players on the draft preview page. Not sure where PG gets their info. I hope PG becomes more accurate as you move forward with more reliable scouting.

Players left off PG list and notes.

Scott Squier- 6'5 185 LHP. 88-94 this spring.
Nik Valenza- 5'10 180 LHP 90-93
I wont call out names on the list, but a few are just not accurate. Not fair to kid to rebut in this forum.

Are East Coast showcases/tournaments the only ones with blogging and live reports? Little disappointing.
