Every Monday and Friday we will announce more players named to the 2nd Annual Baseball Express Cape Cod High School Classic
Three more of Southern California's top prospects have accepted invitations to the 2nd Annual Baseball Express Cape Cod High School Classic to be played July 28th.
Earlier this week we announced Brett Krill and Josh Vitters, both Southern California prep players expected to be among the nation's top prospects. We continue on today with the announcement of two infielders and one right-handed pitcher - all ranked among the nation's Top-100 prospects in their Draft class.
The first is shortstop Christian Colon from Canyon High School. Colon moved to Anaheim Hills from Salt Lake City, Utah in the last year. He starred on the USA Youth National team last summer and was named the top prospect in the Fall at the Team One National Underclass Showcase.
Colon is ranked 19th among all high school juniors in the latest Baseball America/Prospects Plus Top-100. He is among the top handful of high school shortstops in the nation and is widely considered a potential first or second-round talent.
Colon is 5-11 and 175 pounds. He bats and throws right-handed.
The second infielder is Courtney Morgan from Mission Bay High School in San Diego. He played at the same high school with former No. 1 overall draft pick Matt Bush.
Morgan is one of the top defensive middle infielders in the nation and will be widely recruited by many of the nation's top college programs.
He ranks as the 81st best overall prospect in the Class of 2007 by Baseball America/Prospects Plus. Morgan is 5-11 and 170 pounds. He also bats and throws right-handed.
Right-handed pitcher Cole Cook is the third player from Southern California named to the Cape Game today. Cook is an imposing 6-6 RHP from Palisades Charter High School in the Los Angeles area.
He was regarded as the top pro prospect from the Class of 2007 earlier this year at the Puma All-American event in Tucson.
Cook ranks as the 48th best overall prospect nationally in the Class of 2007 by Baseball America/Prospects Plus. He also is a top student as well who will likely be one of the most heavily recruited pitchers on the West Coast this year and a must follow for all professional teams.
