On Wednesday & Thursday at three-time defending 3A champ AC Flora HS, DP hosted our 9th Annual 'open summer showcase' for players in the Classes of 2015, 2016 & 2017+... 45 college coaches and pro scouts were in attendance to lay eyes on some budding talent and some previously unknown names!

For two days Mother Nature lurked but, with the exception of two innings on Wednesday, everything was completed...even after being absolutely washed out that evening!
One thing is clear, the talent pool in the 2016 and 2017 classes get deeper by the day which bodes well for the future of our state. More new names emerged this week, which is always exciting for evaluators. Nothing is more fun for us than laying eyes on a legit young prospect for the first time!
Fist Bump: It is always a pleasure to run a DP event at AC Flora, Coach Andy Hallett and his staff are always so accommodating. While the playing surface is constantly in immaculate condition, the TLC that his field gets year around was our saving grace after Wednesday night's Flash Flood washout. When we left the yard that night, it appeared a miracle may get us on the field a day later. Instead, we cranked up right on time Thursday morning and finished an hour early that afternoon, just ahead of the next storm that hit. DP thanks ACF for opening their doors to us once again!
