'26 SS/RHP Christopher Moore (Kentlake/Washington commit)

Headlining the roster this Saturday will be the #1 ranked 2026 prospect in the state. Washington commit Christopher Moore (Kentlake) has one of the most polished overall skill sets in the class with great overall feel for the game on all sides of the ball. As a position player, he combines functional athleticism & body control with easy actions and an above average arm while handling SS duties. At the plate he has an easy operation with quick, loose hands and a relaxed barrel. Presently shows gap to gap power with some lift to pull-side. But he's more of a well rounded hitter than just a big swinging type. On the mound, his maturity shines with a combination of FB command and above average secondaries. His ability to spin a breaking ball & manipulate location is really what separates him from other arms in the state right now. We expect another strong performance and won't be shocked to see the tools tick up. 

'26 RHP/3B Jake McCall (West Seattle) 

McCall has shown 2-way ability across multiple events in the past year. A quick defender at 3B with active feet and arm strength. He also possesses a smooth, left handed stroke at the plate with a classic uphill finish that produces consistent loft. On the mound, he was up to 82 last winter and given his athleticism and arm speed, its easy to envision a jump this weekend. He also shapes 2 of the better breaking balls we've seen in the class with his CB/SL combo, both up to 2300+ rpm. 

'26 OF/RHP Nolan Fahey (Tahoma)

Fahey has shown off his versatilty both in a showcase setting as well as game action. Capable of handling INF/OF duties, he moves well in both spots while demonstrating the appropriate actions. Offensively he uses a balacned, quiet set up with a middle of the field approach and a line-drive stroke. On the mound, he's got a full repetoire and has manipuated his arsenal to all quadrants of the zone when we've seen him face live hitters. Given his frame and slight build, he could be poised to make a substantial jump in 2024. 

'25 OF Braden Bartholomae (Skyline)

The embodiment of a 'professional hitter'. Bartholomae combines physical ability & handeye coordination with a disciplined approach and sound swing decisions. Offensively he shows a consistent ability to produce a narrow split between his Peak EV and his average EV, which demonstrates how often he makes flush contact on the barrel. The strength gains are noticable as he's impacting the ball with much more authority. Defensively he is a natural OF with quick reads, closing speed and terrific instincts. 


'26 C/RHP Jackson Rankin (Bellevue)

Strong bodied backstop with arm strength and power. Rankin will make his PBR event debut on Saturday and has the potential to emerge as a big winner. The athletic traits allow him to impact the game in a lot of ways, both as a potential power bat and a defensive minded C who can shut down a run game while handling a staff. 

'25 OF/RHP Tate Stearns (North Kitsap)

Stearns was the MVP of the PBR Kentucky Wood Bat tournament this past July after putting up big offensive numbers in game action. At 6'3, 215, he has a great profile for the OF long-term. Expect to see some big power output this weekend and Stearns could trend upwarads very rapidly.
