Event Wrap-Up: Tons Of Talent Shows Up For Future Stars Series North Carolina Regional Combine

April 3, 2021

So, that went well.

The first trip to Holly Springs, NC for the New Balance Baseball Future Stars Series powered by Program 15 proved to be a very fruitful one, as a significant amount of premium players were there to make their name on a beautiful spring day at beautiful Ting Park.

“We came into Holly Springs to a first class facility and saw first class talent,” said NBBFSS/P15 President and CEO Jeremy Booth. “We had a great group of players who have futures in the game and are working hard to achieve just that. You’ll hear from these guys down the road on multiple levels.”

In the short term, you’ll almost surely see them again; no official determination has been made on player invites for the NBBFSS’ upcoming jewel events this summer in Lake Charles, but candidates emerged for the Underclass Combine, National Combine and Pre-Draft Combine.

Even with a smaller turnout given this was the first foray for the Future Stars Series into this neck of the woods, the list of players that caught the eye of the best staff in the business was lengthy; sure, veterans of big FSS events like Mason Balsis, C, 2022 (VA) and Griffin Stieg, OF/RHP, 2022 (VA) turned in the big performances that everyone expected.

But some players who are new to FSS events did as well, including Jake Lathrop, 1B, 2022 (NC), Gabe Adams, SS, 2024, Ajonte Bullock, CF, 2025, Beckett Gurian, 1B, 2025, Cannon Peebles, C, 2022 (NC), Aaron Smigelski, 3B, 2022 (NC), Ty Torti, SS, 2022 (NC), Lucas Manning, C, 2022 (NC), Cole Lanford, LHP/1B, 2024, Samari Robinson, OF, 2023, Caleb Ketchie, RHP, 2021 and Brock Fowler, 1B, 2022.

Fowler in particular made some waves at the event on Friday, catching the attention of Booth after showing up and competing despite suffering a separated shoulder the night before playing football.
