2019 Future Games - Team Nevada Day 1 Notes

Buddy Gouldsmith
Nevada Scouting Director

The 2019 Future Games is being held for the first time at the baseball complex of the LakePoint Sporting Community in Emerson, GA.  D1 coaches from throughout the country were in attendance to see some of the world’s finest talent in the 2021 and 2022 graduating classes. The premier uncommitted players in the United States and Canada were on display for the workout portion of the 4-day event. Each position player was given the opportunity to run the 60, receive their exit velocity, take on field batting practice, and workout at their primary defensive position.

’22 Tai Nguyen, 1B (Bishop Gorman) Nguyen was physically impressive, drawing attention when he stepped into the box for his BP session, making loud contact. He drove the ball to all fields with solid carry to back up his 97 mph exit velocity

’22 Parker Vint, 3B (Coronado) The strong bodied Vint took a flawless round of groundballs with instincts for his third base position. He made on target throws with efficient footwork and noticeable reliability. His 6.98 60-time shows well for his size 

’21 Eiie Kligman, SS (Cimarron Memorial) – Kligman showed reliable infield actions with a positional velocity of 82 across the diamond. The switch hitter has a balanced approach and found consistent barrel from both sides of the plate. 

’21 Callan Hermansen, OF (Green Valley) The projectable Hermansen was impressive in the skill workout with a positional velocity of 91 mph from the outfield with strong, true carry. He made consistent hard contact during his BP session back spinning balls gap to gap, flashing pull-side power. 

’22 Grayson Grinsell, OF (Reno).  The lean and lanky Grinsell threw well the from the outfield with low online flight. He showed an appealing loose naturalness to his swing with whip in his barrel during BP that will provide a high ceiling.

’21 Aric Anderson, C (Palo Verde) After waiting through two lightning delays the catchers finally got a chance to display their skills. The left-handed hitting Anderson caught and threw well with a clean exchange and 1.93 pop time.

’21 Joey Adge, C (Del Campo) The sturdy bodied Adge showed an efficient transition to throw, with throws that regularly landed in the tag zone, playing up his 1.97 pop time. His showed strength in his barrel in a mostly pull-side power type approach.
