On Friday, April 6, Fauquier traveled across town to take on Warrenton rival Liberty-Bealeton, with the Falcons pulling away late in the game to win 9-4. Here are notes on four players who stood out in the game:
Blaze O'Saben SS 2018 (UMBC)
O'Saben has an athletic frame, moves well on the infield and is quick, fields ball with soft hands and has a clean exchange. Throws from a high three-quarters arm slot with a short action, average arm strength with accuracy. At the plate, hits from the right side from an open athletic stance, short level line drive swing with some bat speed. Showed good approach in game, using the entire field, flying out to deep right, singling to center twice, and singling to left. His speed is probably his best tool and is game-changing when he is on base. Ran 4.06 home to first.
