    Wait, can we actually do that?
    I thought the whole idea of the tournament was to get them scholarships in colleges so then they could be drafted later on.

    It depends on the player's eligibility. I'm sure a lot of these guys are going to go to college.

    He's a 20 year old his draft year is gone and he didn't go to college, making him a free agent.

    Not too many people were talking about Andrew Case, the Saint. John N.B. native, before the tournament. The 20-year-old pitcher had to take a back seat behind his Martimes teammate J.P. Stevenson, as well as hurlers Kurtis Horne from Sooke, B.C. and Zach Pop from Ontario Black.

    This was until he threw his first no-hitter in the semi-finals against Quebec White, striking out 13 batters in the process.

    Receiving handshakes and congratulations from the likes of Roberto Alomar can’t hurt his stock.

    “Big atmosphere on a big stage like this, it’s a good feeling to do it here,” said the member of the Prairie Baseball Academy after the game. “Hopefully, it will help a lot to get recognized, hopefully they [scouts] noticed.”

    Performing well at events like Tournament 12 can only help players who are not on everybody’s radar.

    Small snippet about him in Baseball America from Tournament 12:

    Andrew Case, a righthander for the Maritimes Grey, struck out all six hitters he faced with a fastball up to 92 mph.

    Best quote:

    Alomar, who was at every game except for Saturday’s (he was at UFC 165 at the Air Canada Centre), presented signed Hall of Fame bats to the winning team.

    Is he likely to start in Vancouver next year?

    Or since he's already 20 would they want to see is he can handle low A Lansing??

    he was throwing 90 so he's got velocity...then you figure he didn't get a college offer (that I know of) so he must have developed late. I'm pretty sure he's a org guy that will probably spend like 7 years with Vancouver but still a cool story

    This is probably the case as is every other undrafted free agent

    Guys, he's not that good. 90 and flat on the 4-seamer. Very good curve for amateur baseball. Decent change. Quebec can't hit btw. If you want to see some real talent come out of Canada, North York won the National Bantam title and are rare for Canadian baseball, as they have 6 or 7 legitimate hitting prospects. And I mean quiet and quick bats and nice fluid swings and power from monster 15-year olds that could be mashing kids who are 18.
