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."
