Some feedback from scouts:

  • Two mentioned Erick Fedde’s performance against Central Michigan as being impressive (and thought Jordan Foley from Central Michigan was pretty good, though he’s more of a 2nd-3rd round type).
  • While Luke Weaver’s numbers looked good agaist Niagara, one scout thought he was just so-so. Weaver pitched at 90-91 with a short slider and a decent changeup.

With the snow and negative temperatures here in NW PA the beginning of college baseball warms the heart, if nothing else. Thanks the top 50 results.
