This year’s event is shaping up to be the best yet. There are currently just shy of 60 of the top 2018’s from 10 different Midwest states.

A few notables to keep an eye on come Tuesday are 3B Alex Binelas (Oak Creek, WI), C/3B Jeff Holtz (Arrowhead, WI), OF Alek Thomas (Mount Carmel, IL), C Jacob Campbell (Janesville Craig, WI), C Nicholas Juaire (Lakeville North, MN), RHP Luke Mann (Vianney, MO), RHP Max Alba (Franklin, WI) RHP Dillon Nowicki (Stoughton, WI), OF Miko Rodriguez (Forest Hills Central, MI), OF Zaid Walker (Homewood-Flossmoor, IL) among a number of others.

RHP Gus Radel (Sioux Falls Roosevelt, SD) will likely be one of the top uncommitted prospects in attendance. The 6-foot-2, 220-pound right-hander made a big jump since the 2016 Future Games and was up to 93 mph at an Iowa event this winter.
