Summer Showcase

Diamond Prospects’ Summer Showcase


June 11-12, 2007


Plenty of talent, plenty of evaluators and plenty of rain on Monday kicked-off a productive opening day at Ben Lippen High School, despite the weather!


Many of the players that DP had previously identified made their way to Columbia for the two-day event, but as with any event of this magnitude, plenty of new names emerged too. By in large, it was not the fastest group of young men ever assembled, as only four guys broke the 7.0 barrier in the 60-yard dash. What we lacked in speed, we made up for in power, arm strength, young talent and those who could flash the leather.


Over the coming days, we will break down the players who excelled in various categories ranging from the best arms and bats to a ranking by class. Stay tuned to DP as we crunch the numbers and survey some of the coaches in attendance to provide you an in-depth breakdown of our second annual event.


Note: DP would like to send a long distance high-five out to Brent Walsh, Travis Catchings and the entire Ben Lippen support staff for allowing us to make their place our home for two days. They opened their doors to us, kept the field in great shape and spun one quality tune after another to break up the monotony! Job well-done, thank you for having us!


NEW! Top prospect rankings from the 2008, 2009 and 2010 classes, to go with overall rankings and the DP awards, are now posted. To view, click here.
