2022 Sluggers Fury: Team Scout Day – 1.23.22

We had a great turnout of players and coaches at the Sluggers Fury Team Scout Day this past weekend in Medfield, MA home of Sluggers Academy. John Malzone, Washington Nationals Northeast Area Scout was in attendance, along with 7 other college coaches. He gave a scouting perspective and college recruiting discussion at the end of the event. We saw a very talented group of 35+ players ranging in graduation classes from 2022 to 2025.

We are going to highlight some of the top players that participated but also some up and comers who you should keep an eye out for in the coming months. Top performers are listed at the bottom of this email, for the major testing categories, including the schools and professional organizations that were present for this event. Overall a good group of players that are mostly high academics which opens up even more possibilities to play baseball in college. While many players showed good ability here were some of the top players who showed well at the scout day.

This morning it hit me… I don’t have to know… That’s it!
