West Virginia Top Prospect Games One Month Away

By Greg Williams
WV Director of Scouting

There is just one month remaining until the 2nd Annual West Virginia Top Prospect Games and the roster for the premier event of the summer is nearing completion. This year's event will return to the YMCA Kennedy Center Field in Huntington. The practice site and home for Marshall University non-conference games will once again welcome the top prospects from West Virginia as well as from surrounding states to showcase their talents over the span of two days.

Last year's inaugural version of the event showcased a total of 55 prospects from four states with 15 players going on to announce college commitments to date. CLICK HERE to view last year's roster.

The format for 2015 will mirror last year with two nine inning games being played on each day. Day one games will be preceded by live batting practice by each team. Day two action will include all position players taking part in defensive evaluations and the 60 yard dash along with two additional games.
