Sanford, FL - Over the last two days, Prospect Wire's 18U Summer Team took the field for some tune-up games vs. several teams at the Orlando Scorpions Invitational. After short notice, most of the 2010 18U regulars took the field under the Sanford heat...and all signs point to an interesting summer.
"The boys looked good for their first time out," explained 18U Manager Paul Giambalvo. "They played hard and really seemed to get along this weekend. I am looking forward to seeing what they can do the rest of the summer. We have some really good ball players and they will only get better working with each other as the summer goes on."
Some of the highlights included homeruns by Roche Woodard and Nick Sacchetta, while the pitching star of the week was Devin Lee, throwing several innings of scoreless relief on both days. "Roche can really swing it and he is certainly fast," remarked Giambalvo. "I was also pretty impressed with K'Shawn Smith. He has some very good range at the SS position and made some fantastic plays ranging to both sides, as well as one where he went back a good way to make a catch behind 3B."
Some other bright spots were turned in from West Florida Shocker player Jordan Savinon, who was filling in this weekend to get some work in. He swung a good bat and showed good defensive skills behind the plate. Dakota Wilson & Austin Hibbard also had a good tournament to help the 18U's.
PW's 18U team will return to action this week, heading down to West Palm Beach, FL for the Florida Bombers FAU Showdown, starting June 10th. Check back this week for the schedule of games and times.
