2017 Future Games Workout Notes - Team Ontario

Day 1 is in the books from Indianapolis with positional players workout taking place at Grand Park in front of 180 plus college coaches from every major conference in the nation. Some of the conferences represented were the SEC, ACC, Big 12, Pac 12, Big 10, Conference USA, American, Sunbelt, Horizon, and the MAC just to name a few. A fantastic opportunity for players to showcase themselves in one setting to all these college coaches.

Some highlights from Ontario:

Owen Diodati, C, 2019
The physical left-handed hitting catcher showed off his natural power during batting practice as he launched three home runs while arguably hitting one of the furthest balls of the day, a shot over the scoreboard in right field that cleared it with ease. Exit velocity of 98 mph that shows his current strength, Diodati threw the ball well from the crouch and should of definitely opened some eyes.

Graham MacNeil, 3B, 2020
MacNeil showed he can handle the big stage today with a clean workout and mature actions allowed him to fit right in as a 14 year old. Timing was slightly off at the plate, the swing and path work well and he made all the plays at third base.

Joel McKnight, OF, 2019
Toolsy outfielder who ran team and personal best sixty time of 6.66. Mcknight was clean in the outfield and showed the quickness in his hands that we’ve known to come by at the plate with line drive sing. Needs to add size to frame but the actions are different and watch out when it all comes together.

Noah Case, 3B, 2019
Another corner guy in the infield, Case was quick to the ball and went line drive off the wall during BP as his bat stays through the hitting zone and he shows more of an up-the-middle swing. Played an adequate third base and should be one of the op hitters this week for Ontario.

Noel McGarry-Doyle, OF, 2019
Doyle is a strong framed outfielder who ran a 6.91 with an exit velocity of 93 mph yesterday. During batting practice, he produced lots of hard contact and showed some power to the pull side with hand eye coordination. Will be one to watch over the next three days.

Overall it was a good day for the Ontario team and they look to get started tomorrow on the right note against Team Michigan at 3:00 with batting practice taking place on D2 at 2:15.
