DAY THREE

+ Six different players recorded a hit for Team Missouri in a nightcap victory over Tennessee, punching their ticket at the time into the gold bracket. C/OF Neyland Hulsey (Rockmart, GA, 2026) paced the way, bringing a pair of runs home in the win. INF Anden Hyde (Lutheran St. Charles, 2026) picked up a hit and drew a walk, while RHP/INF Dylan Curtis (Francis Howell, 2026), OF Landon Matthews (Lafayette, 2026), INF/RHP Eli Kemna (St. Elizabeth R-IV, 2026), and INF Brendan Pyle (Fort Zumwalt East, 2026) all recorded a hit in the win.

+ Despite the loss, C/RHP Drew Parsons (Jackson, 2026) threw well against a quality Illinois’ lineup. The 5-foot-10, 150-pound right-hander limited hard contact and kept the ball on the ground, pitching in the mid-70s with his fastball and occasionally snapping off a few mid-60s curveballs for strikes.

+ C Logan Studer (St. Louis University, 2026) continued his hot streak at the plate, jumping all over a fastball in his first at-bat and clobbering it into the left-center gap for a standup double. All the strong, compact backstop had done in the week to this point is find the barrel with authority while impressing behind the plate, too.

+ 1B Cooper Montgomery (St. Dominic, 2026) found his stride in this contest, barreling two balls up to the pull-side that caught our attention. The 5-foot-10, 170-pound left-handed hitter singled in his first at-bat and followed that up with a loud out to the right side his next time up to the plate. Montgomery, who clutched up against Team Florida the day prior, has middle-of-the-order upside as he continues to fill out a lanky, projectable frame.

+ There’s no shortage of raw power attached to the 6-foot-2, 185-pound frame of INF Jaymeson Forest (Gateway Legacy Christian Academy, 2026), and he displayed that in his second at-bat. The left-handed hitter scolded a loud double, showcasing the sheer strength he holds when his levers sync up.

DAY FOUR (PLAYOFFS)

+ A winner throughout the tournament, INF/RHP Anden Hyde (Lutheran St. Charles, 2026) put together yet another strong performance at the plate in Team Missouri’s playoff win over Ohio. The 5-foot-11, 195-pound physically built Hyde went 2-for-2 at the plate, driving home a run. Hyde was one of the workout’s biggest winners, reaching a peak exit velocity of 96.5 mph and averaging 89.4 mph off his barrel.

+ Three other players chipped in offensively for Team Missouri: INF/C Nolan Sissom (Fort Zumwalt West, 2026), OF Austin Jones (Lindbergh, 2026) and OF Tyler Cook (Liberty-Wentzville, 2026). All three tallied hits in the win and reached base via a walk, while Sissom and Cook brought home a pair of runs, too.

+ 3B/RHP Max Partney (2027) had yet another productive all-around day for Team Missouri’s 13U squad in a playoff victory over Oklahoma. Partney brought home three runs total, tallying two hits and also scoring a run in the win. The 6-foot, 155-pounder also threw two scoreless innings on the mound, striking out four.

+ A spark plug throughout the Junior Future Games for Team Missouri’s second 14U team, OF Stone Marion (North Point, 2026) had yet another strong showing in a narrow playoff win over Nevada. Marion tracked down several balls with confidence in center field, exhibiting a certain aura to him defensively that’s advanced for his years. He also drew a walk and barreled a loud lineout to left field, hitting out of the leadoff spot.

+ OF/RHP Rocco Marriott (Platte County, 2026) juiced yet another extra-base hit in this game, thumping a triple deep to left field for an RBI in the first inning. The 6-foot-3, 185-pounder also flicked a deep extra-base hit earlier in the week.

+ Hopping on the mound in relief, INF/RHP Jaymeson Forest (Gateway Legacy Christian Academy, 2026) hurled two key scoreless innings for Team Missouri (2). At 6-foot-2, 185-pounds, Forest’s fastball sat in the upper-70s and, on occasion, he turned to a shorter-wrinkle breaking ball for strikes.

DAY FIVE (PLAYOFFS)

+ Missouri’s 13U squad made a semi-final run in their playoff bracket as well, falling one game short of a championship berth to Florida. 3B/RHP Max Partney (2027) stayed hot at the plate, totaling three hits on the day and bringing home a pair of runs, too. INF Brandon Wilson Jr. (Staley, 2027) also drove in two runs, while LHP Hayes Pratt (Park Hill, 2027) brought a run home against Florida.

+ After advancing to the quarterfinals in the gold bracket, Team Missouri (1) up-ended Texas (1) to secure themselves a spot in the tournament’s ‘Final Four’. Nine different players recorded a hit in the win, headlined by another multi-hit game from 3B/RHP Anden Hyde (Lutheran St. Charles, 2026), who also drove in a run. INF Ethan Carswell (Blue Valley, KS, 2026) picked up a hit and brought a run home out of the leadoff spot, while C/OF Neyland Hulsey (Rockmart, 2026), OF Tyler Cook (Liberty-Wentzville, 2026), and INF Brady Tanner (Francis Howell, 2026) all plated runs in the win.

+ Team Missouri’s (1) magical playoff run ended in the semi-finals, falling to eventual tournament champion Arkansas 4-2. Left-handed hitting OF Austin Jones (Lindberg, 2026) paced the offense with a 2-for-2 day, while Hyde, Hulsey, Tanner, and INF/C Nolan Sissom (Fort Zumwalt West, 2026) all picked up hits in the loss. On the mound, Hyde held a quality offense scoreless through three innings on 38 pitches, allowing just one hit in his start.

+ C Logan Studer (St. Louis University, 2026) helped Team Missouri (2) jump out to an early lead in their first playoff game against Team Illinois. Studer squared up yet another extra-base hit, advancing to third base the next batter on a passed ball and eventually coming around to score via a sacrifice fly. Studer screamed a loud lineout in his second at-bat, working on the barrel yet again.

+ C/RHP Drew Parsons (Jackson, 2026) showed his offensive capabilities in this contest. Parsons sprayed a lineout off the barrel to second base his first time at the plate and followed it up with a single through the left side his next time up. He also picked up a hit in Team Missouri’s second game of the day - a playoff loss to Tennessee. An advanced defender behind the plate, Parsons began to gain momentum offensively as the weekend progressed.

+ OF/LHP Caden Kern (McCracken County, KY, 2026) had a productive day at the plate across two games for Missouri’s second squad. Kern battled through an at-bat and peppered an RBI single in game one - an eventual win over Team Illinois. Hitting out of the leadoff spot in game two, Kern drew two walks and singled again.

+ RHP/1B Jake Brettschneider (Francis Howell, 2026) flashed offensive upside attached to his long, lanky 6-foot-2, 165-pound levers over two games on Sunday. Brettschneider barreled up an RBI single in game one against Team Illinois and found the sweet spot again in game two, juicing another hit late in a contest versus Tennessee. He toed the rubber against Illinois as well, pitching in the upper-70s after hitting 83 mph with his fastball earlier in the week.

+ Yet another example of the power that 3B/RHP Jaymeson Forest (Gateway Legacy Christian Academy, 2026) possesses - he scorched a late single against Tennessee to the pull-side at 92.4 mph.
