C Luis Chavez (Snappers)
Florida International University. Chavez would eventually walk with MVP honors, as his RBI double which was laced deep into the left-center field gap proved to be the winning run driven in. Chavez shows a present feel for the barrel and during batting practice barreled it multiple times for hard line drives into the gaps. Confident approach and shows above average bat speed from the right side of the plate.
OF Marcos Sevillano (Snappers)
Seminole State. Sevillano stood out during batting practice where he showed a confident, relaxed approach from the left side, going gap-to-gap with ease. Works in rhythm with his swing with a feel for the barrel. Sevillano has an athletic, 5-foot-11, 185 pound frame and has shown to be an above average runner as well.
RHP Corey Martinez (Snappers)
LHP Emmanuel Fernandez (Snappers)
