Logan GoodnightThe initial Class of 2016 rankings have been released and Logan Goodnight (The Linsly School) has earned the nod as the top prospect in the class. The 6-1, 165-pound SS/RHP hit .371 as a varsity starter as a freshman in 2013. Goodnight was also named to the WWBA 16U All-Tournament team in July 2013 as a member of the Chandler Baseball program. During the course of the tournament he went 6-for-16 with four doubles and four RBI. Goodnight is currently participating in the WWBA Underclass World Series in Fort Myers, Florida.
