SWFL 18U Pitchers from Naples HS

The SWFL 18U team is a championship contender and they have a number of players sure to move on after high school.

I saw two pitchers in particular this morning who should get pro follows and college offers.  Both go to Naples High School.

Lefty Cameron Griffin is a solidly built 6-1, 190 and threw consistently in the mid-80s with a 78-80 MPH slider.  He has a good delivery and easy arm-action.  The stuff is short for pro ball right now, but it's September and he may look different in the spring.  The stuff he has will work for a lot of Mid-D1 schools and Griffin projects for me as a durable hurler who can throw a lot of innings.

Kevin Lindheim is a 6-0, 210 righty who threw 86-89 MPH in relief, one of the best arm-strength guys we've run into during this tournament.  Lindheim's arm works well, with a long stroke, though he throws severely across his body on his delivery.  The strongly built Lindheim had some depth on his 70-72 MPH curve.  It's not hard to see him as a good short reliever in college, mid- or high-D1.
