Exciting Players Everywhere at the All-State Showcase
By: Corey Goldfarb | corey@prospectwire.com

Bradenton, FL - Every year players get better and better at younger ages. This past weekend at the IMG Academy in Bradenton, there were plenty of players to be excited about for the next several years. Here are just a few of the players that opened some eyes.

I can't remember a showcase where a freshman ran the best 60 time, that's right a freshman or 2017 grad.

Jose Cadenas a 2017 grad from Gaither HS in Tampa, Fl ran a 6.54 second 60 on grass and was an amazing 4.28 seconds with a turn on his way to a stand-up triple in one of the games. Jose showed a big arm from the OF as well. Cadenas is an electric game-changing player.

Christopher Chatfield a 2015 grad from Spoto HS in Tampa, Fl put on according to PW President Matt Bomeisl, "a BP display that rivaled current Milwaukee Brewer Scooter Gennett's BP at a PW showcase back in 2008 and was in the top 3 best BP's I've ever seen at one of our showcases!"

In case you haven't heard already, Chatfield a 6'3" 185 lb left-handed hitting outfielder and former Prospect Wire Underclass All-American nearly hit the batting cages in right-center on field one. After that, he was called over to field two by a professional scout to take BP in front of several professional scouts. Chatfield then proceeded to hit four consecutive balls over the trees in right-center and out onto the road.  I asked Chris if he actually watched his homeruns, "no, and I had no idea how many I hit," said Chatfield. Everyone there knew how many Chris hit out and the power display left everyone watching speechless and the professional scouts smiling. In case his power wasn't impressive enough, Chatfield ran a 6.7 second 60 as well.

Robert Paulino a 2015 SS from Everglades HS showed some of the quickest hands defensively I've ever seen, and I've seen a lot of great defensive shortstops. I think it was best described again by Matt Bomeisl as, "Paulino reminds me of a pinball machine, the ball just looks like it ricochets off of his glove towards first base." It's almost as if the ball never touches Paulino's glove, that's how quick his hands are.

There were many players that performed well this past weekend. It was an exciting weekend from start to finish. Our staff will be releasing our notes on players later this week.
