Over the past seven weeks 58 teams and over 700 players have been locking horns on the diamond participating in our DP Upstate Fall League. As a staff, we have covered as much baseball as possible in efforts to not only identify our top upperclassman but also our up-and-coming talent. Two weeks ago, we recognized the top 80 prospects in our All-Star Games at Clemson University. Tonight, we hand-selected 40 underclassmen to showcase in our first annual Underclassman Shootout hosted at Holden Field at JL Mann HS. Instead of just rolling out games, the decision was made to run these players through a showcase style workout before topping it off with a 9-inning affair. Our main goal at DP during the fall is development and what better way to do so than to get these 2022-2024 players used to a showcase style workout so when decisions are being made on them in the coming years, they will be comfortable in this format.
