FORT PIERCE, FL - On the first day of the Inaugural Father’s Day Classic, four games were held at Lawnwood Stadium that showed a lot of young talent. Notable players had performances that stood out amongst their games.
Miami Gardens Seadawgs 17U vs. St. Lucie Show 18U
Not even a year after pitcher Michael Crispino (2015, St. Lucie Show 18U) had Tommy John surgery, he is back with a live arm, throwing up to 85 with a 2200 spin rate. The uncommitted player had 3 strikeouts in the 2 innings he pitched. When asked about what his surgery recovery process was like, he said his physical therapy, consisting of up to 3 hours, 3-4 days a week, has allowed his post-surgery arm to feel stronger.
Catcher Marcial Hernandez (2017, Miami Gardens Seadawgs 17U) showed a lot of potential. Not only did he score 2 of his team’s 5 runs, but he landed an official invite to the Prospect Wire Underclass All-American games in Tampa at the end of July.
All-American Prospects 17U vs. Freshwater Storm 18U Blue
Right fielder Ryan Frost (2015, Freshwater Storm 18U Blue) showed off his strong arm by throwing out a runner at third base in the bottom of the third inning. The Florida Southern commit continued to show his talent, helping lead his team to an 8-3 win over the All-American Prospects.
