The high school baseball season is winding on down and let’s start looking at some of the top players from this past season and tonight we will look at some of the pitchers and feel free to chime in on who you think was the best of the best…
I have seen quite a few of the pitchers this season and I saw one of the area’s best last night in Adam Swim…Solid job for the NWG Vikings in their 1-0 win over Southwest Guilford…So let’s put Swim on the list….Let’s also say that Zack Littell from Eastern Alamance may just be the top pitcher in our area for this, the 2013 season….Add him in too and I have been impressed with Devin Sweet of Southeast Guilford High School…He reminds me of a younger version of Josh Tobias and I have been a huge Tobias fan from the first day I met that kid….If Sweet has any of the Tobias work-ethic in him, he will go places….Matt Kaplan the lefty from Northern Guilford is one of those aces of the Nighthawk staff…..
Scott Wilson, one of loyal readers had this to say about Matt Kaplan and he brings up some very good points….
Nobody talks about that kid Kaplan from Northern. I have been watching that kid pitch for the last 3 years over there and he gets bigger, stronger and better each year. About two weeks ago I saw him throw a complete game with 13ks. A few weeks ago at the tournament at Newbridge Bank Park he threw a complete game shutout. Nobody wants to give him any attention…I wonder why that is? I know pitching and this kid is only going to continue to get better and better. He’s a senior and I think he is unsigned. He has had a great spring and I would imagine that his numbers are some of the best in the area. Someone should look at his numbers and talk about him. College coaches are missing out on something special in this lefty. That’s my two cents.
So there we have it with a few of the key names and let’s start formulating that list and really don’t know which of the Robinson brothers from Eastern Guilford to put on this list, so maybe someone will let us know if it should be Caleb, Andrew or Luke….Southern Guilford has some good possibilities with Sugg, Hedrick and others….Watkins, and the kids at NEG need to find a spot….Butler and Gay from HP Central, Horkey from Ragsdale, Dale from SWG, Nail and Schofield from Page, Foster from Western Guilford, Qualin Price from HP Andrews and on we go….
Here goes the list and you can or subtract and make you own list/lists….
