Corbin Olmstead Wins MVP
By: Matt Bomeisl | matt@prospectwire.com

AUBURNDALE, FL - For the first time in Prospect Wire's 6 year history, a member of the non-winning team was awarded an MVP award.

2012 Corbin Olmstead (Jefferson HS, Tampa, FL) was announced as the Most Valuable Player in the 2010 Fall Wood Bat Classic on Monday.  Olmstead carried the Cannons both at the plate and on the mound as he paved the way for the Cannons Runner-up showing this weekend.

Olmstead hit .467/0/3, and lead the tournament in hits (7), and doubles (2).  He also had impressive stuff on the mound, as he lead Corbin Olmsteadthe tournament in velocity (up to 91mph), as he came in critical times of 2 different games to preserve the win for the Cannons.  In game 1, he came in with bases loaded and no outs vs. the Florida Hardballers and his team leading by 1, but proceeded to strike out the side in a game that was a possible loss.  He also had a key appearance during the semi-final game and started the championship game.

Olmstead finished second in the tournament in innings pitched (10), 4th in strikeouts (10), picked up a win on the mound and had a 2.80 ERA for the event.  Olmstead started the championship game as well going 7 IP, and allowing 3 runs to the eventual champion Cyclones.

It was a quality selection after looking at all of the candidates. For me, I thought about Tyler Bender. While he did not blow away the tournament with "tools" or anything flashy, he posted outstanding #'s on the mound, picking up the win in relief in the quarterfinals and semi-finals, while picking up some very key RBI's in both games. Joey Kreihbel's defense and pitching were awesome too. Taylor Layner continued his streak of scoreless baseball in PW events to 16.2 innings pitched without a earned run. In fact, if you total in the Steinbrenner event, he has only allowed 1 run (Steinbrenner was not a PW Event).

But in all Olmstead was deserving. He got his team out of a bases loaded, no outs situation by striking out 3 consecutive hitters with high 80's heat in game 1. He picked up the save in the championship by coming up big at the end, and then tossed 7 gutsy innings of baseball against a very good hitting team. Up until the championship, he had a string of like 9 consecutive quality AB's...including like 5 or 6 straight hits. It was a tough call, but he was deserving of the honor!

We are extremely proud of you Corbin. Remember to keep God first in your life and you'll continue to have many more blessings like this one.

Way to go Cyclones! Congratulations to all the boys. The players on both teams played with heart and desire. What an exciting game!

We love all of our former Shockers team mates and wish them continued success in baseball as well as life. PW Cannons have such nice young men who just happen to be awesome ball players. They are all MVPs in our book.
