Riley McGinleyThe 2014 Elite Prospect Showcase is set for this Saturday (November 1) and many of the top prospects in the Class of 2016, 2017 & 2018 as well as a few talented unsigned seniors are prepared to showcase their stuff. Last year's inaugural event was highly successful with 20 players going on to make college commitments to date. Among those in attendance last year, 2016 OF J.J. Bleday (Titusville) was one of the standouts. The two-way prospect went on to make a commitment to Vanderbilt shortly after the completion of the event and was named this fall to the final USA Baseball 59 man roster for the 2015 18-and-under National Team Trials.

McGinley went 4-for-7 in game play and ran a 7.24 60-yard dash at the PA Underclass Games in June. The 5-foot-8, 155-pound right-handed hitter starts from a slightly open stance and uses a short swing path to produce a bat exit velocity of 79 mph. McGinley displayed soft hands, a quick release and the ability to make throws from several arm angles defensively. He was the starting second baseman for Owen J. Roberts HS as a sophomore in 2014 and plays travel baseball with the All Star Baseball Academy Futures. McGinley is currently ranked No. 85 in the PA Class of 2016.
