Missouri Players Selected to Participate in the Super 60 Pro Showcase



Super 60 Slide 2013

By Sean Duncan and Ethan Silverman

The 11th annual Super 60 Pro Showcase is less than two weeks away. And once again, the event’s roster is loaded with the top draft-eligible prospects within the Prep Baseball Report’s eight-state coverage area.  

This year’s event is set for Sunday, Feb. 3 at the Max-McCook’s 125,000 square-foot open turf facility in McCook, IL.

In the rich history of this event, there have been many indelible performances. But last year’s overall showing may have been the best ever, as 24 of the 29 pitchers sat 88-plus, while 19 of the 39 position players ran sub-7 60s, to name a few highlights.

Missouri players are well represented, with eight players selected to participate. No. 4 Lex Kaplan (Ladue HS, Miami) is the highest ranked Missouri player who will be in attendance, and the only Missouri outfielder joining an athletic group. Other Missouri who will be in attendance are highlighted by No. 5 1B Drew Bridges (Carthage HS, Missouri State), No. 6 C Tanner Murphy (Malden, Southern Illinois), No. 10 3B Matt Brown (Vianney, Arkansas), No. 12 SS Brad Jelinek (Warsaw HS, Central Missouri)and No. 13 Ryan Howard (Francis Howell Central, Missouri).

While the Super 60 is reserved predominately for draft-eligible seniors, a select few juniors are also invited. Last year, No. 1-ranked prospect Trey Ball (New Castle HS, IN; Texas) stole the show, as the 6-foot-6 two-way standout began his ascent to a high first-round draft pick come this June.

The Class of 2014 is especially loaded with talent. The top juniors at this year’s event include: No. 2 RHP Alex Lange (Lee’s Summit West HS, LSU)  and No. 10 Storm Rynard(Raymore-Peculiar HS, Arkansas).
