The 2014 Elite Prospect Showcase took place Saturday, November 1st at Keystone State Baseball Academy in Manheim, PA with 56 prospects from three states displaying their skills. While just three of the prospects in attendance fall into the category of unsigned seniors, each flashed next level abilities that should entice schools that are still looking to take a closer look.

Eric FordThe standout among the trio was easily RHP Eric Ford (Cambria Heights). The 6-foot-1, 175-pound righty, ranked No. 149 in the PA Class of 2015, showed the top velocity among pitchers at the event sitting 85-88. Read more on Ford in our recap of the day's top performances.

Outfielder Joseph Parrillo packs a punch in his 5-foot-7, 160-pound frame. The East Islip, NY senior showcased solid straight line carry and athletic actions defensively with an above average 86 mph arm. Parrillo ran a 6.97 60-yard dash and displayed quick hands with a direct swing path at the plate. The right-handed hitter barreled the baseball routinely from a crouched stance with a leg lift stride. Parrillo displayed the ability to be a contact guy that runs well enough to affect the game from the top of the order with a bat exit velocity of 74 mph.

Outfielder Kyle Miller (Pope John Paul II) ran a 7.09 60-yard dash coming back off a meniscus injury to his knee. While he was not at full strength, his athleticism and foot speed potential were evident in his defensive actions. Miller flashed a 77 mph arm from the outfield while playing through the baseball. The right-handed hitter utilized a lift and replace stride in a solid round of batting practice with a bat exit velocity of 76 mph. Miller is currently ranked No. 336 in the PA Class of 2015.
