re: 2014 Baseball Commitments


I'm going to post some notes from the event about the commitments, but it just started yesterday so I'll probably wait until it is over. I know I saw a comment about Deichmann hitting a 400 foot double off the wall in center today.

His attendance doesn't mean anything one way or the other. We have commitments there every year. Some come to school, some don't.

With this latest development, what are his chances of actually making it to campus? Being a Nola kid does anyone have any insider info?


A positive is catholic league kids usually make it to campus. There have been 2-3 over the last 20 years that have not

Is he going to stay at shortstop in college or move to another spot?

Not sure, I think he can prob play SS. He's kind of a bigger body guy like Cecchini or Reid Brignac. I can see him skidding over to 3B if it comes to it

Notes from the PG National Showcase scout blogs:

Top 1B Velocities (All Teams)
Bobby Bradley 87

Top Infield Velocities (All Teams)
Bobby Bradley 89
Grayson Byrd 87
Gregory Deichmann 85

Top Outfield Velocities (All Teams)
Grayson Byrd 88

Top 60 Times (All Teams)
Gregory Deichmann 6.72
Grayson Byrd 6.75

Game 17 Red vs White
"Grayson Byrd also chipped in, smacking a double up the middle, plating two runs for the Red team"

Game 7 Gold vs Green
"Although only a foul ball, Gregory Deichmann put a charge into a 88 mph, driving it just to the right of the foul pole, but it was about 10 rows up on the upper deck of the Metrodome."

Game 6 Columbia Blue vs Purple
"Next onto the bump was Jake Latz, a large, lean framed left-handed pitcher from Lemont, IL. A LSU commit, Latz worked around the zone, hitting the outside corner to right-handed hitters with his fastball that he ran up to 89 mph. Striking out 5 batters in a row and retiring the side in both innings he threw, Latz kept the hitters off balance by mixing in a 73 mph curveball (1/7 break) and a 81 mph change-up that showed good fade."

Game 5 Maroon vs Gold
"On the other side in the Maroon dugout was Alex Lange, a veteran of many Perfect Game showcases and tournaments. Touching 92 mph early in the first, Lange settled in at 89-91 for his two innings of work. A strong build and a fast arm, the LSU commit repeated his delivery well and was able to get a lot of swing and misses on his slider that was 79-81 and flashed a change-up at 79, picking up a couple strike outs."

Game 4 Green vs Navy
"Gregory Deichmann (Metairie, LA) hit an 89 mph fastball about 407 feet, hitting the top of the 408 foot marker to dead centerfield, for a stand up double and picked up an RBI."

Game 2 Green vs Maroon
"In the field Gregory Deichmann made a nice play at second base, diving up the middle, showing good instincts and flipping the ball to the shortstop for the force out."

Teams 1-6 Batting Practice
"Gregory Deichmann (2014; Metairie, LA) put on a power display last year at the Metrodome, as a participant in the Junior National Showcase. Now a year older, and this time participating in the National Showcase, Deichmann showed off his bat again, generating some serious bat speed and driving the ball hard to both fields and putting 2 balls over the right field fence."

Wow. Now that's a great name. I'm imagining the substitute teacher from Key and Peele reading it off the roll.

Do we know if Mac Marshall will ever set foot on campus?

6'2" lefty with a 94mph fastball seems like a VERY HIGH MLB draftee.

Thought I would update this now with the season underway. I believe we signed all of the commitments originally listed over the Summer in the November signing period except Cameron Williams of Texas. He has been removed from the list and appears to be headed to San Jac.

re: 2014 Baseball Commitments


Cameron Williams is a good athlete for a 6'6" kid. He has a good curve ball and his fastball runs in the upper 80s and touches the low 90s. Remember though that 88 from a 6'6" pitcher looks a lot more deceiving with his reach to the plate. His dad is a long time pitching coach in Texas.

re: 2014 Baseball Commitments


Yeah I'm not sure what happened. He fit the profile of the big right handers the staff really likes to target. Since he is going to San Jac I'm wondering if he has basically made up his mind to go pro asap.

He wants to go somewhere where he can be a starting pitcher and make the jump is probably the case. I really haven't heard much about him in a while. I know he and his dad were pumped about LSU. San Jac is legit, but it's strange to make that jump. My guess is his dad knows some pro scouts that have given him some useful information.
