Ten Terriers Attend Mlb Camp
The Major League scouting bureau ran their annual invitational winter tryout camp this past weekend. Ten Terriers were invited to the event that had pro scouts in attendance from the Yankees, Phillies, A's, Reds, Brewers, Giants, Jays, Mariners and Canada's Director of National Teams, Greg Hamilton.
Lefty Billy Ralston was the first Terrier to take to the mound. The scouting contingent certainly took note of his 88mph fast ball and sharp curve.
He was followed by fireballer Connor Smith, who lit up the radar guns at 89mph.
2011 draft eligible right-handers, Roberto Suppa and Lucas Scocchia gave the scouts an early look at their stuff for next year.
The hitters were on the agenda Sunday morning and Terriers Brandon Dailey, Graham Tebbit, Simon Clarke, Jordan Mountford, Brian Doran and Anthony Vacca had the pro scouts busy taking several notes as they were all very impressive during their BP sessions.
The boys will continue to be tracked for the MLB June draft during the Terriers upcoming trips to Florida and Kamloops.
