The 2016 PRO-DAY Fall Showcase & Games concluded recently with players participating at Junior College, NAIA & Division I Colleges and at a former Minor League Stadium during the month of September and early October.
Players represented High School Classes 2017-2021 that played in games and went thru professional workouts that were held at Three Rivers Community College in Poplar Bluff (MO), Lyon College in Batesville (AR), University of Central Arkansas and the Ole' Professional Park (Taylor Field) that once was the Home of the St. Louis Cardinals Minor League Club and most recently the Locomotives in Pine Bluff (AR).
These prospects were evaluated by College Coaches and professional scouts with their grades being sent off to three colleges of the players choice.
Green County Tech High School Prospect Preston Hart of Paragould was the fastest in the 60-yard dash with a 6.84. Garrett Dennis of Watson Chapel High School had the Best "Pop-time" for a catcher at 2.01 and his high school teammate Aaron Frazier was 85 mph off the mound to record the Top Velocity.
Several Players received offers and many others are now on colleges follow list, said Jeff Gross, CEO of PRO-DAY Baseball. "Many of these players that attended was the first time they had went thru a professional workout, evaluated by college coaches and scouts," said Gross. "We had a very outstanding Freshman Class that attended and they are on several radars now, which gives them a chance to get their name out early in their high school career.
"We had seniors who may have not had offers to play at a college and now they do so," said Gross. "PRO-DAY Baseball looks forward to watching these players progress and seeing them advance to the next level."
