    Thx Math!
    I heard Clements is back and healthy as well. Pipeline is bright at Stoneman Douglas. They will be preseason #1 in country once again and we have their ace committed. They are looking for their 3 straight national championships which is unheard in HS baseball, let alone for a public school.

    It was a dramatic change to go from names and numbers and written tidbits to seeing real players on green grass. My confidence in the chances of the 2024 edition took a big leap. Some of the guys simply look good before the even take the field, Brookins, Donay and Garrison are BIG. Not giant, but tall and thick. Shelton was smaller in stature than I remembered from last season, but that may have been from standing close to big teammates. There was nothing small about his HR. Shelton, Thomas and Albert worked at SS and didn't have any tough plays, but never had any stumbles. Martinez played 3B and made one nice play to his left in front of Shelton, but he was fooled by a hinky hop that took a ground ball from Guy between his legs. He wears 23 and the play reminded me of DFabian's defensive performance. One scrimmage is not quite meaningless, but Guy and Robertson made it seem we'll see some offense from whichever starts in CF. Evans was dressed, but didn't play or take BP, I'm not sure whether he worked out on defense. McDonald is listed only as RHP, but played 1B. Rodriguez and Satin were more effective on the mound than Neely or Cags. Neely's pitch count was high from a ton of foul balls, many of them by Shelton. No one reminded me of Wyatt, but we seem well stocked with position players. It will take a couple of weeks of pitcher going an inning or two at a time to get an idea what sort of staff will work the mound.

    As for Shelton...
    I thought he'd be taller, too.

    But yes his homerun was a you knew it was gone as soon as it got airborne. Great swing, great launch angle, perfect ball flight, but it did help that #33 gave him one over the heart of the plate. Good to know Shelton will make you pay for mistakes. Must be nice for Kurland to get sandwiched between Shelton and Cags.

    I had been sure 33 was Satin, but couldn't bring myself to contradict GatorGal and changed the name in my comment. Now I'm pretty sure I was right after all. 247 sports spoke well of Satin and other than one pitch, he did well, but better to find out now that top hitters can find the berm when handed a mistake.

    That ground ball got to him really fast, looked like some of my golf game worm burners. But it was barely to his left and he didn't get his glove on the ground. You made an all too familiar comparison on DFab and makes me wonder if Martinez has played more SS than 3rd like many guys out of HS.

    Only through untraceable offshore bank accounts. Not there's anything illegal about that. (sarcasm)

    Fall Ball practice Friday 10/13/23
    Coppola is on the field for warm ups but restricted to soft toss only.
    Evan's is throwing into net and short throws with feet stationary.
    Practice started at 3 instead of 2 30 as scheduled. Some players were on the turf early for bunt duty.

    As infielder practice wrapped up Thomas, Martinez, and Russell struggled with bare handed slow rollers and had to stay longer to complete the 3 base cycle. Then had to drop for plank duty as the field was set for BP.

    As BP is finishing up it looks like the starting pitchers for today's scrimmage will be Cags for Blue and Neely for Orange.

    I was impressed watching Robertson in BP at how many line drive hits to LCF he was hitting and ground balls up the middle. He had very few flyouts, the opposite of last year.

    Here are notes from todays 4 inning scrimmage.
    The best pitcher was Cags going 2 innings giving up 1 hit, a triple leading off the game, 1 walk, no runs and 3 strikeouts. He held good command and a scout's radar showed he was in the 94-96 mph range. Lots of pops in the catcher's mitt.
    The best offensive player was Mikey Robertson going 2 for 2 with a homerun.
    Orange won it 3-2 on a 3 run homer by Garrison.
    The music was better for awhile and was all surprisingly by Creed. I did kind of get numb to it after a few innings.
    Overall pitching was much better today other than the one inning with the 3 run HR.

    Really interesting info posted by Gatorgal about the practices from this weekend. I'm looking forward to getting back up there to see if we seeing a new trend in the lineup or if this is just a weekend to change it up a little. We've got a long way to go but this is a good time for Sully to move guys around to see if they maintain their hot bats or kick start a few that need a shakeup.

    I moved some pitchers around in my first page tracker. Since Clemente and Coppola are still working their way back, I moved them with the relievers and moved up some freshmen who are off to a good start. It remains to be seen how they look at the start of spring but hopefully this helps any of you keep track of how things are coming along.

    Pitchers
    Starters - Jac Caglianone(L), Brandon Neely, Cade Fisher(L)
    Possible Starters - Liam Peterson, Christian Rodriguez, Luke McNeillie
    Relievers - Ryan Slater, Blake Purnell, Fisher Jameson, Jake Clemente, Pierce Coppola(L)???
    Signees - Jacob Gomberg(L), Frank Menendez(L), Robert Satin(L), Hunter Jones, Caden McDonald, Alex Philpott, Grayson Smith, Reilly Witmer

    “McNeillie”— just sounds like a baseball name….
