The New Balance Baseball Future Stars Series keeps on rolling, with the staff set to head to the next regional combines this weekend in Phoenix and Dallas.
“Very good weekend coming up in the spring tour of regional combines and player advancement process,” said Program 15/Future Stars Series president and CEO, Jeremy Booth. “The staff is always excited to see these regions and the venues of Scottsdale’s Arcadia High School and The Rangers Youth Academy are exceptional. Looking forward to seeing the players in action.”
A heavy turnout for both events has already been confirmed, with some faces familiar to those who follow the FSS closely expected at each.
For Saturday’s regional combine in Arizona, which is set to be held at Arcadia High School in Phoenix, a handful of players with experience at the FSS jewel events are set to be on hand; among them are 2023 Pacific commit Grant Scholzen, 2022 Arizona State commit Dante Turgeon, 2024 uncommitted Underclass Elite standout Nathan Carrillo, and 2024 uncommitted Underclass Combine players Trey Markham and Jacob Downing.
In addition, there are some newer faces expected to attended, including 2023 OF/RHP Matthew Hart, son of former major-leaguer Corey Hart, 2023 RHP/C Deegan Cordova, 2024 RHP Nikolay Stegon and seemingly countless others.
The story is a similar one for the event the next day in Dallas, which is set to take place at the Texas Rangers Youth Academy in Dallas. Silas Voegely, a Rose St. College commit who popped at the most recent National Combine, leads the charge of players attending this one, a day that will have a wide array of college commits at the facility.
2022 OF/1B Coldon Kiser (Texas St.), 2022 OF Brett Hall (Lamar), 2023 OF Dakota Howard (Oklahoma), 2023 INF/OF Martavius Thomas (Arkansas), 2023 RHP Jackson Baker (Alabama), 2023 INF/RHP Javier Torres (Texas St.), 2023 INF/RHP Mason Gerrard (Baylor), 2023 INF/OF Ace Reese (Houston) and 2024 INF/OF Austin Phillips (Oklahoma) are expected to make up the contingent of committed players looking to improve their respective games with the Future Stars Series event.
Of course, there will be plenty of uncommitted talent in attendance as well, notably Jordan Yearby, who smacked three hits in Lake Charles during the 2021 Underclass Combine.
