It was hot. It was muggy. But we had a great time with OKC Elite Camp in association with the Alliance Fastpitch National Championships. A great group of college coaches were in attendance and got a great look at the 43 players.
The players were locked in right from the beginning. We started off the day with hitting and it didn’t disappoint. On a field with 250 foot fences, we saw lots of power and finesse. The defense was outstanding and showed a high level skill set.
2022 Abigale Dayton (OF/MI) showed flashes of outstanding ability in the OF and at the plate. Abigale has surprising power and is an ideal #2 hole hitter. Not only can she slap effectively, but she can also swing away. She is going to be a tough out for years to come.
2023 Kate Verhoef (OF) continued her high level play this summer. Kate is an excellent hitting prospect who will only get better in the years to come. She can run and get it in the OF as well. Rarely do we see players able to cover the gaps as effortlessly as Kate.
2023 Tristian Thompson (3B) is an absolute bomber who can hit it deep and hit it often. Attracting lots of attention by Power 5 schools across the country. She is a run-producer who will be a good player wherever she chooses to play.
2023 Shonty Passi (SS/C) and Jewels Hanawahine (2B/UT) both displayed an impressive skill set and attracted notice from several coaches that were there. Shonty and Jewels are excellent athletes who first came to our attention from ODM® and had a really good day.
2023 Reese Lee (SS), put on a show in live BP and continues show very refined glove skills. There is no doubt that she will be one of Arizona’s most highly recruited players in this class.
And finally, we have to mention 2024 Amayah Doyle, a superb offensive and defensive prospect. She can run, hit, and throw; and she is as close to a five-tool player as we have seen in this class. Obviously there are several others at this level, but make no mistake. Amayah will be one of the best 2024 players in the country when it is all is said and done.
We ended the day with some competition that was fun and exciting. It was simple. And it was pretty quick. But there was no doubt that it was a great way to end the day. There is nothing like a little competition to get the blood flowing and the excitement building. It was fun, and we hopefully will make it a part of our Elite Camps from here on out. We will look forward to seeing you this Fall. Take care, and keep working.
