George Pope- 2B- Savannah State University, Decatur, GA- 6'2"/190. Pope has solid bat speed, and he makes contact. He was much heavier in high school and has changed his approach to more of a line drive spray type. He also showed good hands defensively and athleticism. He ran a 7.16 and threw 79IF. We didn't see the power we projected in him out of high school, but it is in there. Good player whose had a nive college career. Big time makeup guy, great kid who loves the game.

Pope was the top right hand hitter at this event. He absolutely crushed every pitcher he faced. He has MLB power potential and the ball sounds much different coming off his bat than the other hitters in Ft Myers. Pope has a large Kirby Puckett type body, but is athletic and graceful in his actions. He runs close to average and shows at least a MLB average arm. We couldn’t help but wonder how he would be behind the dish. If Pope were a left-hand bat we think he could go early in the draft. Being right handed at the plate might take away some luster, but only until everyone has a chance to see him hit!
