Sarasota, FL - Only a week away until the start of our 7th Annual Prospect Wire Florida State Finals and PW's Inaugrual Elite 100. The Elite 100 is strictly invite only.
With 124 teams and nearly 1,500 position players participating in the tournament, it's very difficult to pick the top 100 position players. That's basically the top seven percent of all the position players at the tournament.
The Elite 100 is something we wanted to do to help the college coaches get a head start on which position players they'd like to follow at the Florida State Finals.
The word on the Elite 100 is spreading throughout the baseball community and colleges are anxious to see which players are attending.
There will be players participating that aren't verbally committed to a college and need to be on college coaches recruiting radars.
Some of the players participating are verbally committed to colleges but may be professional prospects, some are high-level professional prospects.
Players that live in Tampa, Sarasota, West Orlando, Lakeland, St. Pete, and other immediate surrounding areas will be expected to workout between 5pm-7pm.
Players that live in Jacksonville, Tallahassee, Miami, Gainesville, Palm Beach and Naples will be expected to workout from 7pm-10pm.
Players are being invited by phone calls and emails. Some players were invited in person at the World Scout League Florida Kickoff last weekend in Auburndale.
The Baltimore Orioles Spring Training stadium, Friday night under the lights, college coaches, professional scouts and great players make for an exciting event.
If you're a player, coach, scout or just a fan, where else would you want to be on a Friday night in June?
Which relatively unknown players are going to catch a college coaches attention? Who are going to be the professional prospects that make a statement on a big stage in front of professional scouts?
The Elite 100 are coming, will you be there...
