2005 Academic Showcase






2006 Top Prospects

Stephen Cardullo - 3B - 2006 - Coral Springs, FL
Cardullo is present strong at 6-0, 200 and can really hit the ball with wood. He hits so well that it's easy to forget that he is a sub-7.00 runner with college level arm strength and quickness on defense, too.

William Hirsch - RHP - 2006 - Suffolk, VA
Hirsch is a very athletic pitcher with a heavy 87-89 mph sinking fastball and sharp curveball. He dominated hitters at the showcase, then turned around and showed he was a power hitting outfield prospect as well.

Alex Cobb - RHP - 2006 - Vero Beach, FL
Cobb was one of the most projectable players at the event, with a smooth, easy delivery that produced a 85-88 mph fastball and mid-70's curveball. He's a good athlete who can hit when he's not on the mound.

Paul McClintock - OF - 2006 - Marietta, GA
McClintock is a left handed hitting outfielder with a solid overall collection of tools. There really is no weakness in his game if he keeps hitting the way he did in Fort Myers.

Steve Kalush - RHP - 2006 - San Mateo, CA
Kalush is a very polished pitcher from California with 3 solid pitches. His fastball is 84-87 and his change up is excellent. He should have instant college level success.

Dustin Huguley - C - 2006 - Lake Wales, FL
Huguley is a power hitting catcher with good defensive skills and a hustling attitude. He also throws 88 off the mound with a sharp 74 mph curveball.

Brice Kelly - MIF - 2006 - Austin, TX
Kelly is a 6-2 middle infielder with a very good balance of tools. If his bat continues to develop, he could become a big time prospect.

Brett Petigrow - OF - 2006 - Coral Springs, FL
Petigrow fits the leadoff profile well as a 5-9 left handed hitting speedster with some present strength. He's also an excellent defensive outfielder with pro level arm strength.

Eric Valdes - OF - 2006 - Altamonte Springs, FL
Valdes is a 5-10 left handed hitting outfielder with excellent hitting fundamentals and a powerful bat. It's hard to believe that he won't be a top level college hitter down the road.

Matt Kallaoun - 3B - 2006 - Marietta, GA
Kallaoun is a present strong 6-2 third baseman with a good balance of baseball tools. He also throws 86 mph off the mound and could further develop there as a prospect.

Michael Hunter - RHP - 2006 - Corpus Christi, TX
Would be ranked much higher had he pitched at this event. We have seen Hunter consistently in the upper 80s at previous events.


2007 Top Prospects

Cody Allen - RHP - 2007 - Orlando, FL
Allen would rate as the top prospect at the event as both a pitcher and as a power hitting third baseman. He throws 90 mph on the mound with little effort and his mid-70's curveball is a hammer. Allen is a top all around athlete with a very high ceiling.

Evan Chambers - OF - 2007 - Lakeland, FL
Chambers is an extra strong junior outfielder with very good tools. He has excellent speed (6.73) and will show you plus power at the plate at times.

Stuart Tapley - MIF - 2007 - Orlando, FL
No player performed better at the Showcase than Tapley. He's an aggressive player with very good bat speed who showed the ability to make the great play in the middle of the field.

Ian MacGeorge - OF - 2007 - Altamonte Springs, FL
MacGeorge is still very slender at 6-4, 175 but can swing the bat with leverage and authority. He's a good athlete who projects best in the outfield.


2008 Top Prospects

Raiko Alfonso - MIF - 2008 - Key West, FL
Alfonso defines smoothness at shortstop with excellent balance and soft hands. He's a switch-hitter with good bat speed from both sides of the plate.
