University of Texas commits have a strong history at the New Balance Baseball Future Stars Series Main Event.
Colin Guerra’s looking to keep that going.
Porter Brown, Silas Ardoin, Jared Southard, Hudson Hamilton and Sam Ardoin have all left their mark — all but the latter two doing so when it was known as International Week — in the first six years of the event, and all signs point to Guerra, a 5-foot-11, 165-pound middle infielder having all the tools to be able to do the same.
First seen at a Regional Combine in Kansas City in his native Kansas back in 2021, Guerra advanced to the Underclass Combine that year, and made his way to the National Combine this year after another showing at a Regional Combine this summer, this time in Atlanta.

“(The Future Stars Series) gave me the opportunity to play against different players across the country,” he said.
“(And the) staff shared with me their baseball IQ and other helpful tips.”
It was at the National Combine where Guerra earned his way to Fenway, showing off plenty of bat speed with flashes of power as a switch hitter with solid offensive skills. While the FSS scouting staff was looking for him to add some strength so he can maintain the shortstop position long-term, as it best suits his profile, Guerra says he’s been working on his speed and agility in the short-term since Nashville.
He’ll work the middle of the dirt for the Orange Team this coming weekend, excited to set foot on the same field that many of the game’s greats have called home, while doing so in front of a large crowd of big-league scouts and execs.
“Fenway is rich in history and some of the best players have played there,” Guerra said. “(I just want to) show them my skills and my hard work.”
