With the fall finally wrapped up and the 2017 baseball season coming to an end, we take another extremely way too early look and preview into the 2018 high school season. With this Spring Forward segment we will highlight players to watch over the high school season, separated by categories that are listed below.

Hitters - 11/27
Power Hitters - 11/29
 Part 1 
Pitchers Part 2

Although a shorter list this time around, today we are highlighting some of the speedsters around the state.  Their impact speed not only has an affect on the offensive side of the game, but also in their ability to cover ground and take away hits by making the field smaller.

Spring Forward: Speedsters


Corey Rosier OF / C / Riverdale Baptist, MD / 2018

Rosier (Chipola CC)brings gamechanging type speed to the top of the order with some surprising pop in his swing as well if you don't pay attention to him at the plate. Rosier is one of those players who when on the field can make the rest of the game look like its slow motion. Rosier plays the game hard as well and makes for a fun watch on the field with the havoc he can create on the base paths.




Tremayne Cobb Jr SS / 2B / CH Flowers, MD / 2019

Cobb stole an astounding 37 bases for CH Flowers during the 2017 season and although the secret is out, don't be surprised to see another high stolen base season from the Jaguars middle infielder. A dangerous bat as well for the Jaguars, Cobb changes the way the game is played when on the bases and will be a key contributor on a CH Flowers team that should contend out of the 4A South. 




Justin Carboni OF / SS / Walt Whitman, MD / 2019

Carboni is another outfielder who possesses top end speed with his 6.6 60-yard speed. Carboni can get to top speed rather quickly and should be a key defensively patrolling the outfield for Whitman this spring. Not to be outdone, Carboni should be a top of the order type player who could score quite a bit of runs this season if on the bases for teammate Tyler DeMartino.
