I met some of the family members of our newest players during the game. It’s always nice to meet the appreciative parents of our guys.
A friend and I spoke with Josh Bonifay. I asked him about Thomas Little. I had been sent a story from a paper in Montana that reported that Little was playing Legion ball. I hadn’t received the message, but a friend who was copied on it showed it to me. I asked Mr. Bonifay about it, and he indicated that things with Little didn’t work out.
The same paper had a story about a pre-season conference All-Star team for football. Former prospect Mitch Gueller of Idaho State made it as a wide receiver.
It’s late. I can’t remember anything else that I can report. This is the last night for the WSOP. I expect it to go until at least 5:00 AM. I don’t think I’m going to make it.
Oh, once the updated top 30 is released. I’ll add the prospects to the team recaps below.
Clearwater (14-14, 50-44) lost to Bradenton, 8-0.

They added an insurance run in the sixth on Abrahan Gutierrez’ RBI single. They retook the lead with 3 runs in the ninth on Ben Pelletier’s RBI single, Marchan’s sac fly, and a wild pitch.
If you haven’t noticed, Pelletier just logged his tenth game in center field.
Williamsport (8-22) no game scheduled.
GCL Phillies East (8-6) no game scheduled.
GCL Phillies West (13-3) beat Yankees West, 9-4.
Brandon Ramey pitched four, no-hit innings … again. This is the third time this season (4 starts) Ramey has no-hit the opposition. This time he was perfect. He walked none and struck out five. Ramey’s fastball was 90-94 and sat 92-93 mph. He also throws a slider and change up.
Waylon Richardson made his professional debut. The RHP was drafted 1n the 40th round in 2018 and underwent TJ surgery. He worked through his rehab and took the mound for the first time today. He retired the side in order on 8 pitches. His 4 fastballs were at 87-88 mph. He also throws a slider and fork ball. As he gets stronger, he should return to his mid 90s fastball from before the operation.
Dalvin Rosario lasted just 0.1 innings. He gave up 3 runs on 3 hits and 2 walks. His fastball was 90-93 and sat 91-92 mph. But, he was unable to keep it in the strike zone. After a lead off double, ground out, and two bases-loading walks, a couple hits knocked him out of the game.
Austin Crowson came in and stranded both inherited runners. He got a pop up and picked the runner off first base. Unfortunately, he walked himself into trouble in the following inning. He left with one two runners on base and a run scored. He went one inning with a double and 2 walks. His fastball was 85-88 mph.
Riley Wilson stranded both inherited runners and threw 1.2 innings allowing a hit and striking out a batter. His fastball was 85-86 mph.
Jaylen Smith pitched the final inning allowing a hit and striking out one. His fastball was 88-91 mph.
Edgar Made opened the scoring in the first inning with an RBI triple. He came home on Andrick Nava’s RBI single. Nava came home on a wild pitch, and Keaton Greenwalt brought home the fourth run of the inning with a sacrifice fly. The Phillies scored a run in the second on Made’s RBI single. They added a run ion the fifth on Christian Valerio’s RBI single. They pushed two more runs across in the sixth on Made’s second RBI single and Kevin Escalante’s sacrifice pop up in foul territory down the third base line. They closed out the scoring with JC Smith’s RBI single in the eighth.
Made (.306) went 3-5 with a triple and 3 RBI. Valerio (.200) went 3-4 with a double and RBI. JC Smith went 3-3 with 2 runs scored, an RBI, and a walk.
Starlyn Castillo has recovered from a blister on his index finger and has begun throwing on the side.
