As part of a weekly series of stories leading up to the Program 15 New Balance Future Stars Series upcoming national events in Houston, FutureStarsSeries.com spoke with A.J. Miller, first baseman for NorCal Baseball and current Oregon commit.
“I’m super excited. I did the event in Sonoma County here in December, and I really liked all the guys they had come out. I was excited to see I was able to go to the one in Houston too, so I’m really looking forward to it.”
Also, please take a look at these thoughts from Program 15 and New Balance Future Stars Series VP of Scouting Butch Baccala on Miller…
“AJ Miller is one of those players that grows on you the more you see him. First day- nice player…second day wow this guy can drive the gaps…third day look at that power…what is there not to like about him. Value as a smooth fielding instinctive 1B, that has always hit for average. Strength and maturation now starting to become part of offensive package that will eventually play into 20-25 home run seasons. Starting to show all of the intangibles and ability to be a future solid 5-6 hole hitter in the Major Leagues. A piece any college would want and a great fit in the end for a Major League ballclub. Modest, humble winning player.”
