Other Notes :

To be honest I haven’t been attending many complex practices or games lately as it’s been too hot (daily heat advisories) but I am still observing via video feeds.  I also interact with scouts, it’s encouraging that multiple scouts have told me that there are a lot of players in the organization they like.  There’s been quite a few teams represented by scouts on the backfields, it’s a really strong FCL group to watch - It’s not just my imagination in regards to the projectable talent I see. 🤓

Happy Day, Happy Baseball ⚾️
