In addition, PBR-Louisiana is pleased to announce a special event to be held on October 18th at the Louisiana Baseball & Softball Academy.

Unsigned Seniors

+ Blake Locicero, OF/LHP, St. Pauls HS(2016)
A 5-foot-11, 170-pound uncommitted outfielder with an average, lanky, athletic frame and currently ranked No. 29 in the 2016 class. Smooth, athletic runner with solid tracking instincts and college average arm strength as a defender. Left-handed hitter with a balanced, smooth, short swing and near college average bat speed. Shows an advanced feel for hitting with line drive type bath and ability to hit. On the mound, his fastball sits in the Low-to-mid 80s with a clean, loose arm. Displays a solid feel for a breaking ball that has tight spin and depth on occasion. Also shows advanced feel for a change up with near fastball arm speed, deception and fade action.

+ Chase Fals, LHP, Pearl River HS(2016)
A 6-foot-4, 210-pound left-handed pitcher with a large, projectable frame. Left-handed pitcher with a long, loose arm action with quickness in the arm speed out of a Ā¾ release and regular effort. Fastball sits 82-84 mph touching 86 mph with slight cut, outstanding angle, and shows the ability to pitch within the strike zone. Breaking ball is a developing pitch with 2/8 shape, gradual break, near fastball arm speed, and occasional tight spin.

+ Grant Schulz, INF, Holy Cross HS(2016)
A 6-foot, 175-pound middle infielder with a lean, athletic frame. Quality defender with soft hands, fluid footwork, clean exchange that plays through balls nicely. Showed a loose arm out of a high-3/4 slot with accuracy that produced a 79 mph positional velocity. Right-handed hitter with an athletic setup, smooth load, short stride, quality lower half, and solid balance. Displayed a flat bat path with extension and a gap to gap approach that produced an 85 mph exit velocity.

+ Hunter Romero, C/1B, St. Paulā??s HS(2016)
A 6-foot-1, 210-pound catcher and first baseman with a large, developed frame with a strong lower half and muscular build. Right-handed hitter with a present college level hit and power tool. Shows a short, compact stroke with flat path through the zone, creating natural leverage in swing and shows advanced bat speed and strength at contact. Went on a tear this summer where he went 14-for-21 in the WWBA tournament in Atlanta. Primary position is catcher right now, and displays adequate abilities behind the plate with solid arm strength and a consistent 2.1 pop time to second base. Profiles more as a first baseman, where he displays solid athleticism and defensive ability at that spot.
