Kyle Carter out of Columbus HS in Georgia won the Power Showcase this year. Previous winners include Cubs draft pick Dan Vogelbach and South Carolina star 1B Christian Walker. It's fascinating that his longest HR with wood was 100' less than his longest with wood. That is why projecting high school hitters that haven't used wood much is so difficult and the amount of HS players that wash out is so high.

Ryan Garvey had a hard time concentrating on baseball at USC, so he's heading to Riverside CC and re-entering the draft this year.

College Baseball Daily continues their top 100 countdown with Robert Refsnyder, a junior OF from Arizona.

MLB Reports has a great interview with baseball Mom and wife Mariana Bichette. Wife of Dante and Mother of Dante Jr., the Yankees standout 2011 draft pick. Can't forget about younger brother (Ichi)Bo.

In semi-related draft news, the Astros interviewed Keith Law as a potential scouting director, among other positions. I'm still waiting for my call. Maybe it's my lack of Ivy league degree or lack of front office experience, or any one of 1,000 other reasons. I bet my shadow Astros will be better before the real team is though...haha

Josh Hart (2013 Draft), Stone Garrett (2014) and Daz Cameron (2015) are a few names that have garnered attention at the Underclass Showcase in Florida this week.
