Holdren's Highlights- Southwest Florida Edition

Connor Holdren
Director of Multimedia


Over the course of this spring I’ve seen over 30 games across the state. With the most being in Southwest Florida. From Tampa down to Naples with plenty of stops to Bradenton and Fort Myers in between. Due to living in the area, this will be the biggest edition of Holdren’s Highlights yet. This includes MLB Draft prospects, D1 bats and arms, JUCO bandits, uncommitted guys, and more. Here’s a look at some of the standouts and highlights from the spring.
