Capitol City Open: Stats Posted



By Ryan Quigley
Illinois Scouting Director

The Capitol City Open Showcase took place on Saturday, September 13th on the turf at Sacred Heart-Griffin High School in Springfield, IL. The Open Showcase featured prospects from the 2015-2018 classes. Several prospects impressed, and over the next few weeks we will roll out individual scouting reports on all in attendance, including position-by-position rankings and the event’s Overall Top Prospects.

This year’s event unveiled 2017 right-handed pitching prospect Austin Chapman (Sacred Heart-Griffin), who impressed with an 82-83 mph fastball from a loose arm action and the makings of a three-pitch repertoire.
