This 8 team tournament is hosted by Georgetown HS at historic Mike Jonhson Park.  Below are are notes and videos of some standouts from each team in the tournament.   


Game 1:

Jordan Hudson, 2024, LHP, Laurens HS

Jordan Hudson showed off against one of the top teams in the state.  Hudson fanned 9 batters in his first 3 innings of work and finished with a total of 10.  The Raider sat mid 80’s and had a great feel for his offspeed pitches.  All around great day for the 

Bennett Edwards, 2025, C, Laurens HS, Georgia Southern Commit

Bennet Edwards was the top hitter in this game by far.  The Georgia Southern Commit has a simple approach to each and every pitch.  Great bat path from the lefty.  Edwards went big fly twice in today's game, one to right center and one to dead center.  Edwards was also a force behind the plate with a ++ arm.

Game 2:

Carson Messina, 2024, RHP, Summerville HS, South Carolina Commit

The Greenwave Ace was on it today with many in attendance.  Messina sat 94-95 and ran it all the way up to 97.  All pitches were working today for the South Carolina Commit helping him to a huge 10k game in 3.2 innings of work.  Messina is a big name to watch in the upcoming season.

Sam Schwamb, 2025, C, Catawba Ridge HS

Schwamb led the copperheads with a huge RBI double to help them to their 4-1 victory over Summerville.  The Catawba Ridge backstop kept the ball in front of him all night showing off his skills behind the plate.  Strong performance from the Uncommitted Junior.

Caden Glauber, 2026, RHP, Catawba Ridge HS, North Carolina Commit

Glauber had a great outing against the #1 team in the state.  Glauber had great feel for his pitches and the sophomore ranged 90-91 topping 93.  The righty is very quick on his feet showing us that with a great play on a bunt in the first inning.  Clauber is a young player and has plenty in the tank.  Keep an eye on him throughout the season.

Game 3:

Owen Powell, 2024, RHP, Georgetown HS, Francis Marion Commit

Owen Powell got the nod for the Bulldogs and did exactly what the coach asked of him.  Powell gave us a complete game one hit gem for the third game of the night.  Powell had a good feel for all pitches and got it done.  The bulldogs ace also got it done at the plate giving the bulldogs a huge 2 RBI triple to help boost their lead. 

Game 4:

Jackson Robinson, 2026, LHP, TL Hanna HS, South Carolina Commit

The TL Hanna starter was electric in tonight’s matchup. Fastball was humming sitting 84-86 Touching 88. Robinson had a great approach to each hitter and attacked them great. Smaller frame but big dominance on the bump. The young Yellowjackets lefty will be a big watch as the rest of the season continues.
