65 scouts turned out for the NWAC Baseball Showcase

LONGVIEW– The pitchers had the advantage in the 2015 NWAC Baseball Sophomore Showcase Saturday September 26th at Lower Columbia College.

The event was not a traditional double header, but instead a true showcase to give four-year coaches and professional scouts a better opportunity to see the top sophomores from across the NWAC Conference.

There were 20 professional scouts in attendance and 45 four-year coaches including 12 from NCAA Division I programs. A moment of silence was observed for longtime Philadelphia Phillies scout Bill Harper, who recently passed away. Harper was a fixture at the NWAC Showcase and Conference championship events and was a true champion for NWAC players.

The pitching dominated the 12-inning scripted game between the South and the East. The game finished in a scoreless tie with just nine hits combined. Isaac Benard of Mt. Hood had two hits including a double. Bryce Tilton of Lane had two hits. The East was led by the two hits of Treasure Valley’s Blake Bell.

The second game saw the North defeated the West 4-2. Bailey Fee of Skagit Valley led the North with two RBI’s. Ryland Kerr of Edmonds had two hits for the North. There were no multiple hit players for the West squad. Pitching was outstanding across the board.

Pitchers on each team faced four batters and each position player had at least three at bats.

114 players took part in the event.

The athletic staff, coaches and players from Lower Columbia did a great job hosting the event and many coaches from across the NWAC Conference handled the administration of the drills and the game itself.
