    Pro Player Hurricane Smith happy to be back from injury

    CRYSTAL LAKE (Joe Stevenson, NW Herald April 15) – Josh Smith experienced the normal doubts anyone would have traveling the long road back from shoulder surgery.

    Perhaps even more so given what Smith was accomplished while throwing baseballs really hard.

    Congrats to Simeon Lucas - PBR Porsche Exchange Player of the Week

    Prep Baseball Report:   Wed April 9, 2014 
    By Sean Duncan, Executive Director 

    Simeon Lucas has grown accustomed to playing under the microscope. As a sophomore, he helped power Grant HS to surprising third-place finish in Class 4A. The pressure has only amplified for Lucas, who entered the spring as one of the Midwest’s top draft prospects.

    Simeon Lucas - Perfect Game WWBA National Championship

    MARIETTA, Ga. -- Pro Player Academy was one of the few teams that was able to avoid rain and get a game in today at East Cobb for the 2013 17u WWBA National Championship. Simeon Lucas took advantage of the opportunity to show off his talents in front of a crowd of collegiate coaches and professional scouts, which he’s become accustomed to doing.

    The 97th ranked prospect for the class of 2014 impressed the scouts again in the five-inning contest against the East Cobb New England Indians. Lucas went 1-for-2 with a single through the right side gap. He was also hit by a pitch and came around to score twice.

    Pro Player Academy piled on the runs to win 12-3 just before another downpour came to wash away today’s remaining games. The coach of Pro Player Academy was happy to get the game at the East Cobb Complex in.
