Metro East Open: Event Preview

By Drew Locascio
Illinois Scouting Director

This year’s Metro East Open is set for Tuesday, June 28 at Blazier Field in O’Fallon, IL. Last year’s event featured the likes of SS Mason Hull (Effingham, 2018) and RHP Kyle Hentis (Red Bud, 2016). Hull impressed on the infield and at the plate, earning an invitation to last summer’s 2018 Top Prospect Games at UIC. Hull is currently ranked No. 47 in the 2018 class and will be in attendance at the Metro East Open once again this year. Hentis is a physical right-handed pitcher who committed to Lindenwood University shortly after last year’s event. Hentis was up to 90 mph off the mound early this spring.

Hopefully this year’s ROSTER brings more of the same.
