I am trying to put together a list of where everyone is playing this summer, but please feel free to add names that I missed as I'm sure this won't be complete. Worth noting that Daniel DeSimone, Tanner Griffin, and Cody Milligan all transferred to Cowley County CC.

I don't remember seeing so many of our guys in the CCBL in one season before; definitely exciting to see so many guys up there. Also, it seems that we have far fewer players in the Jayhawk League this year.

Cape Cod League
Brady Basso - Brewster Whitecaps
Colin Simpson - Chatham Anglers
Jake Taylor - Chatham Anglers
Mitchell Stone - Falmouth Commmodores
Jensen Elliot - Yarmouth-Dennis Red Sox
Also worth noting that Tom Holliday is managing Chatham and Daylon Monette and Randy Whisler are there coaching.

Below is a good read on Tank.

I watched a Chatham game a week or so ago and saw Tank lay down a sacrifice bunt. It surprised the other team so much that they made an error on the play.

*Love these pitching numbers on the Cape.

Northwoods

Dayton Provost - (forgot to mention this one for your list. He's with the Fon Du Lac Dock Spiders) - .226, 12 K, 53 AB, 12 H, 5 RBI (looks like he may be injured)
Cabbiness - .197, 32 K, 76 AB, 15 H, 6 RBI (Cabby has raised his BA over 100 points in the last week or so.)
McCusker - .200, 20 K, 65 AB, 13 H, 1 RBI

Boone - .133, 75 AB, 31 K, 10 H, 8 RBI

California

Cash - .330, 88 AB, 16 K, 29 H, 15 RBI (24 of his 29 hits are singles. Good sign after last year)

Speaking of Summer Baseball, what is going on at Allie P?

I have driven by the stadium and see baseball games going on with a few people (mainly under the overhang) watching the game. Probably parents?

I am guessing high school type clubs???

Saw a game going on late yesterday afternoon (July 13th)

Great work @Takeout Slide !

Completely agree, those pitching numbers for our guys in the CCBL are great.

I'm really excited about what Sifrit is doing as well. He had a highlight reel catch in CF the other night and seems to be hitting and pitching well.

Great to see Leeper and Standlee putting up big numbers on the mound and Cash and Neustifter at the plate. Surprised Boone's numbers aren't better, but not overly worried. Good to see Gardner having a nice summer, hopefully he takes some confidence into the fall.

They play a lot travelling team tournaments at the college campuses over the summer.

Tank learning how to bunt effectively could be a very valuable weapon against a shift. Nothing wrong with him working on that during the summer.
It’s the point of summer
Exactly. I saw a video the other day of Tank going opposite field for an RBI double. If TH has him thinking about beating the shift, that can only be a good thing.

A few questions for those who may know.

1. What are everyone's thoughts regarding Sparks' and Sifrit's roles? Position players or pitchers or two-way players?
2. From everything I've read it looks like Gragg is truly a big time get. What are the chances that he comes in and cracks the starting rotation immediately?
3. If Cabbiness continues to struggle, who is next man up for that 3rd OF spot? Convert Provost, Northern, or Garcia? Maybe Sifrit?

Thoughts appreciated.

Is Gragg a juco transfer and what's his first name?
