2022 RHP Christian Foutch, Chatfield HS (Arkansas commit)
Christian is an athletic RHP with a great pitcher's body and an outstanding right arm. His fast ball has some boring action and he maintained velocity throughout at 91-93 touching 94. He has an over the top east delivery with a slider that sat at around 85-87 , and a devastating split finger that stayed between 82-85 with sharp, late breaking action, depth and good vertical movement. The split is an outstanding swing and miss pitch. Christian has the command to throw all three pitches for strikes and attacks the strike zone. His ability to throw with velocity and then to have plus a breaking ball which should provide him an opportunity for great success at the next level. A clean delivery and repeatable mechanics should are a plus.

2024 RHP/1B Brady Snow, Chatfield HS (Uncommitted)
Brady is a big, strong, athletic 2024 who showed great presence at the plate. He hit balls hard in almost every at bat, using the entire field and hitting a laser home run to right field and then a double to left field.  He exhibits good bat speed and balance which allows him to hit with power to all fields and prove to have a big future in front of him as an offensive force.

Brighton and Legend matched up in a very intense and competitive game. 2023 RHP Brok Eddy, Brighton (Arizona State commit) was impressive in his start despite pitching in 20mph headwinds. Eddy went 6 innings giving up 3R. He has the ability to pound the zone with all of his pitches. FB ranged from 84-86 most of the day and touched 88. Has ASR that creates ground balls vs RHH. He is very consistent in locating his FB on the outer half of the plate. His CB 72-75  is a dominant pitch. 12/6 with a late break and appears to have 2 separate gears.
