This event was held in conjunction with Dennis Gomes’ tournament, which was once a Grapette event but is now on track to become one of the first Diamond 9 events on the West Coast.  Dennis has moved from his long and storied tenure with the Grapettes to the Intensity program based off the East Coast.  The West Coast Intensity is the newest program in NorCal, and under Dennis’ guidance it will surely become a NorCal power in the years to come.

As for the Jamboree, we had a great time with these very special young women who we seem to know so well.  96 of them turned out for the event, and they had the opportunity to work out in front of most of the Regional schools, and a few who flew in for the event.  The weather was perfect, and of course the venue is one of our favorites...Arnaiz Park, run by one of our good friends in the game – John Furhman – is one of our favorite Jamboree parks.

We had some notable performances on the day.  2018 P/1B Payton Goodrich exploded on the national recruiting scene with her size, her velocity, and her offensive ability.  Payton will certainly be one of the west coast’s premier recruits in the year ahead.  2017 P Linnay Wilson backed up her performance at PGF Nationals with a solid outing.  Linnay has the ability to beat hitters inside with a solid back-door curve.  Her velocity is solid and will only get better.  And finally, 2019 P Kaia Oliver showed outstanding potential. Kaia has legit stuff, and can bring it consistently in the low 60’s.  Kaia is going to be a very fine player at the next level.

Other outstanding performances were turned in by 2016 1B/OF Kailey Rossiter, 2017 Brianna Vire, 2017 Armani Brown, and 2018 Maia Rader.  Rossiter is simply a very good player who has somewhat slipped through the cracks.  She can swing it, and is very good defensively.  Vire is an outstanding athlete whose best days are ahead.  Brown is coming off an injury, but has a chance to make a huge splash this Fall.  And Rader is a polished performer both offensively and defensively.

Many others turned in solid efforts as well, and it is always tough to not be able to mention everyone.  We do want to thank the NorCal softball community for their support and friendship over the years. 

While we always try to caution players and parents about reading too much into these numbers, it would be wrong to minimize them as well.  These measurements, which we first introduced to the softball world 4 years ago, are becoming increasingly important to the college coaching community.  There is no question in our minds that two years from now, the Allister Index will be a standardized measurement that every serious softball player in the country possesses and works to improve upon 3-4 times a year.  It is becoming a major part of our Report that goes out across the country.
