Summer College Crosscheck- Week One


David Seifert
Director of College Scouting

The summer of 2020 has seen the creation of several new collegiate leagues across the country. One of those is the Grand Park Summer Collegiate League, located just north of Indianapolis. With team names such as the Turf Monsters, Snapping Turtles and Screwballs, the league has plenty of creativity to go along with impressive talent on the field.

With my head on a swivel attempting to watch four games simultaneously, there was plenty of action. One position player who stuck out was catcher Hayden Jones. He was ranked No. 55 overall in the 2018 prep class and is now at Illinois State after transferring from Mississippi State at semester break this past winter. Jones showed a plus arm from his knees, strong receiving skills and the ability to put the bat on the ball. He showed a balanced approach and level swing with above average raw power to all fields. He is sure to attract plenty of scouting attention this fall and next spring as he ascends to the top rounds for the 2021 draft.

Additionally, there were several pitchers who caught my eye on my initial look at the GPSCL, including a couple potential top round talents for 2021 and 2022.
