CFBL Elite's Tryout Day 1
By: Corey Goldfarb | corey@prospectwire.com

Sanford, FL - The first day of CFBL Elite’s tryouts at Sanford Stadium not only brought the players and coaches out, but the fans as well. There was a great crowd in attendance on day one.

It was a perfect day for baseball, clear skies, temperature in the mid to upper 70’s, and a beautiful venue for baseball. For pictures of the days events check our Twitter #prospectwire or our Facebook page Prospectwire courtesy of Prospect Wire assistant Maddisen Vahl.

The tryout started with college coaches speaking to parents, ex-CFBL Elite players talking about their experiences in the program with parents and players, and CFBL Elite owner Jim Boghos talking about his program.

There were at least 20 colleges on hand to watch the tryouts.

After the players stretched, it was time to see some speed in the 60 yard dash.

The top 60 times I recorded were Cory Voit’s 6.84, Kevin Capella’s 6.85, Kyle Muth’s 6.87, Zachary Gary’s 6.91, and Jake Metzger’s 6.97.

In the next couple of days, I’ll have batting practice reports as well as defensive reports on players. There were several players I liked with the bat during bp as well as in the field defensively.

After the infielders and outfielders showcased their abilities, the catchers popped quite a few good times down to second base.

The top catchers pop times were Matthew Coello’s 1.94, Austin Mauer’s and Gunnar Bradshaw’s 2.04, and Brad Nenna’s 2.06.

Tomorrow, I’ll begin to work on my overall player rankings after seeing some game action.

The day ended with the pitchers throwing bull pens in front of all the colleges. The top velocities were from Jacob Corso a LHP that touched 87mph and sat at 85-86mph. Corso also hit well in bp. Benjamin Feinman, Cory Crow, and Billy Smith all RHP's were up to 85mph. There were 5 other players that touched 84mph including, Matthew Affeld, Joseph Bernhard, Adonnis Ventura, Zachary Gary, and Ryan Evans.

Let’s hope tomorrow’s weather and atmosphere is as perfect as todays!
