The seventh annual Colorado Jamboree started off with a strong group of pitchers and older players who captured the coaches’ attention during the Sunday session. Over 60 college coaches were in attendance and right away got to see a good group of catchers display their hitting prowess. After the hitting segment, 27 very good pitching prospects showcased their abilities. Yet these were only a few of the talented players who participated.
As always, we like to mention some very special performances, but unfortunately can't metion them all. 2020 OF/C Kenzie Chambers had an excellent day. Kenzie is a solid defender and a very good hitter. Also in that class, 2020 P Kaitlyn Young put on a show in the live pitching segment, showing off her 66 mph velocity, coupled with a knee-buckling change. Kaitlyn is going to be drawing a lot of attention in the weeks ahead.
In the 2021 class, C/3B Brooke Dumont, showed excellent potential behind the plate with solid pop times and was equally as adept at 3B. Rachel Sherwood was superb defensively. Middle infielder Gwyneth Ludwig is a solid defender with soft hands and good instincts. All three players are excellent offensively. They will be very good hitters at the next level, that will hit for average and some power numbers.
The 2022 group as a whole was very strong. Catcher Riley Whalen is a solid hitter and showed lots of potenital defensively. Kaitlyn Perucci has a solid defensive skill set and a really good bat. Kimberli Rodas simply had a very good day. Not only can she swing the bat, but she is slick as can be with the glove at SS. And finally pitcher Josey Marron was spectacular in the live pitching segment, combining excellent spin with pin-point location.
Finally among the young players, three middle infielders put up eye-popping performances. 2023 Leah Mays, 2023 Savannah Groshong, and 2024 Sa’Mya Jones all showed very sophisticated skill sets for their age and have a chance to be high level recruits if they keep working on their games and athleticism.
We want to thank all the parents and players who made Sunday a very special day. Also, thanks goes out to Triple Crown and especially Dave King for giving us a venue and holding a great tournament for players and families from across the country. Dave is certainly one of the finest people in the game, and we appreciate his support.
