Scout Day 2008: Myrtle Beach Seahawks


By: Austin Alexander-February 9, 2008

HuffmanJ-stance.JPGThe Tim Christy Era was ushered in at Myrtle Beach High on Saturday as his Seahawks welcomed Aynor and Diamond Prospects into their facility for a Scout Day and scrimmage. An absolutely perfect February day pitted two teams 30 minutes apart with a great deal to prove entering the 2008 season.

Myrtle Beach has question marks behind the dish and on the mound after graduation left them in development mode. Expectations still exist, however. Sophomore Jared Huffman (right) and senior Bill Lackey will serve as lightening rods for this club and each were obviously the pulse of Christy’s first club at the Beach, a team has hopes of making racket in Region VI-3A.

Today, DP picks apart the tools and gives you a glance inside the Myrtle Beach baseball program.

Top Prospects

 Rank  Name  Class  Scout Notes
 1  Jared Huffman  So  Pure ballplayer; Can hit from both sides of the plate, understands the game and plays it the right way; very serviceable at SS but projects as an offensive 3B
 2  Bill Lackey  Sr  Hard-nosed energy machine; was wired all day and usually wears the dirtiest uniform; could likely contribute at the next level as a two-way player
 3  Josh Dishroon  Sr  Recent transfer from Indiana; body, arm and breaking pitch make him a prospect
 4  Alex Roberts  Fr  All of his tools project to make him an interesting player
 5  Morgan Byrd  So  Solid runner with a flat swing and pop in his bat
