By Ryan Quigley
Illinois Scouting Director

The Prep Baseball Report Unsigned Senior Showcase at the Max in McCook, IL will take place on Sunday, October 12, 2014. The open showcase is geared towards all uncommitted 2015 graduates, and will include several area colleges in attendance. Nearly 70 schools were in attendance at last year’s event, and we expect a similar number at this year’s event.

Moline’s Austin Fancher impressed back in February at the Preseason All-State Showcase with a lanky frame and a fastball in the low 80’s. Fancher is currently ranked No. 190 in Illinois’ 2015 class.
