First of all, let me apologize for going dark for so long. I travelled to Arizona to scout a Prospectwire.com tournament and the USA Baseball 16U Championships. I then got home, had one day before Bay Area World Series started, then after BAWS ended, I was back on a plane two days later for the ABCL Top 20 Championships on San Bernardino. Suffice to say, in those three days I was not travelling or scouting or writing for the work I was doing, I was trying to get some relaxation.
If you are not aware, Alameda won BAWS 2011, defeating South Bay in the final. Redwood Christian HS RHP Daniel Jensen (2012) was named Most Outstanding Pitcher, Acalanes HS OF Grant Diede (2012) was given the Brett Jackson Award for Most Outstanding Player, Clayton Valley HS MIF Jesse Medrano (2013) was named Most Outstanding Defensive Player, and Piedmont Hills HS LHP/1B Patrick Higashi was named the Fellowship of Christian Athletes Most Inspirational Player.
I still plan to get all the BAWS 2011 updates on 9county9 as well as updates about all the goings on in the area, including the new Santa Clara coaching staff, the coaching changes at Cal (pitching coach and recruiting coordinator Dan Hubbs has moved on to USC, where he pitched collegiately) and all other noteworthy news.
