Besh is a 5-foot-10, 160-pound prospect that exhibited athletic actions in the outfield with good carry to throws of 81 mph. He hits from the right side of the plate with a square stance, a solid lower half and very quick hands. He barreled the baseball repeatedly and showed the ability to use all fields with a bat exit velocity of 78 mph. Besh went 1-for-5 at the plate in game action.

1B Zach Craven, McKeesport HS, Class of 2014

Craven is a 6-foot-3, 185-pound uncommitted senior that showcased a soft glove hand and good mobility around the bag at 1B with throws of 78 mph across the diamond. The right-handed hitter displayed an 82 mph bat exit velocity and the ability to barrel the baseball consistently in batting practice. Craven continued his strong showing this fall at the plate going 2-for-4 in game action.

SS/OF Seth Magee, Seneca HS, Class of 2014

Magee is a 5-foot-10, 155-pound uncommitted senior that showcased athletic actions and a quick release on throws of 71 mph across the diamond. The right-handed hitter hits from a square stance with a flat bat path through the hitting zone. Magee displayed the ability to barrel the baseball regularly and used all fields in his round of batting practice. He went 1-for-4 in game action while squaring the baseball in three of his at bats.

2B/3B Domic Peroni, Laurel Highlands HS, Class of 2016

Peroni showed well in all facets of the game. The 6-foot, 155-pound infielder utilized a square stance along with a lift and replace stride foot to barrel the baseball consistently during batting practice.

The right-handed hitter showcased excellent rhythm to his swing and the ability to barrel the baseball routinely with a bat exit velocity of 83 mph.
