All American Prospects, Brevard Aces Named Co-Champs at PW Finals 18U
By: Brian Werner |

PORT ST LUCIE - After enduring 5 days worth of rain in Port St. Lucie, FL - thunderstorms again would shorten the PW/WSL 18U Finals.  This time it was the championship game that was effected by rain.

In what was set-up to be a great battle between two high quality programs at the NY Mets Tradition Field Stadium, the All American Prospects 18U and Brevard Aces 18U were named co-champions of the PW/WSL 18U Finals.  The game was setup to be a battle between two WSL teams with different backgrounds - the first-year Brevard Aces program spearheaded by former Yankees #1 draft pick and former college baseball coach Jason Arnold, and the long-time powerhouse program the All-American Prospects founded by head coach Frank Schaefer and Mike Adams.

Although the All-American Prospects have a rich history of draft picks, tournament titles, and college scholarships - this was their first PW Championship.  

Meanwhile, the Brevard Aces 18U found themselves in a similar boat (no pun intended) with rain washing away their Florida State Finals Championship game vs SCORE Intl at the Baltimore Orioles Ed Smith Stadium in Sarasota earlier this summer.

This event marks the 2nd event in which the Brevard Aces have won a tournament championship, to add to their runner-up earlier in the summer as noted via their Twitter account:



Although Frank Schaefer was set to retire from summer coaching after this game, next year is the 10-year anniversary of the All-American Prospects and Schaefer has hinted at giving it another run and making it a special summer.

The Prospects were paced by prospects like Bryan Scheker (2015 grad, Clermont, FL) who was projected by Prospect Wire scouts as a D1 type player now with a ton of upside that could shoot him into MLB draft discussions as he develops.  Scheker was named an Underclass All-American on the opening WSL event in Auburndale, FL over Memorial Weekend.

The Prospects got critical efforts from 2014 MIF Enrique Esquivel (hit close to .600 for the tournament), Richard Harrell (5 IP, 0 ER in playoffs), Matt Schaefer (2013 grad, CG, 0 ER, up to 85mph fastball with pitchability) and others to get them into position for the championship.

The Brevard Aces continued to get strong performances from Sam Crocker (2015 grad, Merritt Island, FL), Connor Hermida (up to 85mph), Matt Yates (up to 86mph), and Ryan Frost (over .500 batting avg for the tournament).
