Dodging Hurricane Matthew, some of the top 2018 and 2019 players in the country came together to play in Ft. Myers. Due to the hurricane, quite a few of the already well known prospects were not able to attend, but never less there was a lot of talented players in attendance.
The biggest standout being uncommitted 2018 RHP Carter Stewart (Eau Gallie FL) who will not be uncommitted for long after topping out at 91mph to go along with one of the best breaking balls in the country that was routinely 3100 rpm or more, which to give you a frame of reference the Mets’ Seth Lugo recently set the curveball spin rate record at 3498 rpm.
There were quite a few other standouts over the course of the weekend and we have broken down the standouts below team by team.
