Check out the Junior Future Series Spring Classic Standouts.

2025 Luke Pappano, 5 Star National 14u 3RS

6-foot 165 pounds and up to 86 mph from the left side as an 8th grader. Pappano favored his curveball throughout his outing which had above average action that got a lot of swing and misses. Pappano will be a high follow arm in the 2025 class with his fastball sitting 84-84 combined with the advanced feel for a breaking ball. 

2026 Randy Ruiz, 5 Star National 14u 3RS

2025 Malakhi Boone, Ballers Baseball

The XL frame and strong bodied Boone was all over the place this weekend. At the dish he showed tremendous strength and the ability to hit the ball hard to multiple parts of the field, he hit multiple triples and hit a long shot out of the park. When he gets moving he becomes a quick runner with good instincts. On the defensive side he showed above average tools that should play well moving on to the next level.

2025 Carter Smith, Ballers Baseball

Projection written all over Smith in his 6-foot-2 165 lb. frame at shortstop. On Day 1, Smith had a few extra base hits, Day 2 he registered a 1B/2B. Getting away from the box score, Smith runs the bases very well and showed above average plate discipline, on top of his ability to barrel up the baseball consistently. Keep an eye on the name Carter Smith in the 2025 class moving forward.
