Kansas Jayhawk Community College Conference (KJCCC) Baseball Scout Day Results

A few weeks back, I spent a couple days at the Kansas JUCO scout days. The East Division teams went the first day with the West division teams going the next day. The conditions were a little extreme the first day with rain forcing the pitchers inside where they had to throw off artificial mounds and when the position players hit, they had a nice wind blowing out. The East players were able to hit a half dozen or so home runs over the CF fence while no one from the West did. Also, the West pitchers had more pitchers hitting 90 mph off the bullpen mounds, while the East squad had just a few. With those disclaimers out of the way, here are some of the players who caught my interest. These are not all my notes, so if you have any questions email me at wydiyd~hotmail~com or on Twitter @JeffWZimmerman
