This past weekend Prep Baseball Report made its rounds across the state scouting some of the best travel baseball organizations showcases and tryouts.

Mike Cassala (2015) C – The Jacksonville University commit from Bartram Trail HS had a strong showing posting the best pop time of 1.86 to 2B and 1.48 to 3B. During BP Cassala displayed gap to gap power with a balanced approach.
Keenan Bell (2016) OF – The Stanton College Prep and Florida commit was solid at the Warriors showcase. In the outfield, Bell showed off his strong arm with accurate throws that seemed effortless. During BP, Bell barreled up plenty of baseballs and displayed his power getting to extension and driving some baseballs.
