News and Notes for Mar 10,2020
Back from Florida. Did not attend a Spring Training game. My choices were Jupiter and West Palm. I have seen both parks multiple times and I was focused on a softball prospect instead. At a softball camp, the prospect batted >.350 with an OBP near .500.

Here are some news and notes:

  • Player Profiles are updated almost every night. This includes any offline biography changes and includes any recent deaths.
  • I am updating player profiles for 2 college teams a day, starting with the top conferences.
  • I have updated the Prospects section with Top 100s and Team Top 30s from multiple sources. You can view this in the prospect section or on player pages.
  • Speaking of prospects, consensus #1 pick Wander Franco is not the only player in our database with this name. There are 3 Wander Franco's. All 3 are listed as born in Bani,Dominican Republic and wait for it, all 3 are listed as brothers. I thought Luis A* Basabe was confusing, this takes the cake...
  • Did you know that Whit Merrifield has a brother named Hite Merrifield? Hite is currently a redshirt-freshman at Wake Forest.
  • For TBC PREMIUM subscribers, I have begun adding Scouting Grades for 2020 to the Player Notes section. (Scouting grades are ratings scouts use to evaluate players on their tools using a 20-80 scale). This includes both MLB and Draft prospects. I won't disclose the source of the grades and they should taken as (someone else's) opinion. Subscribers will see the notes and have the ability to share notes or post private notes for themselves on player pages.
  • Korean League (KBO) stats have been added for 2018-2019.
  • A reminder that College Stats are being updated each day, 5-6 conferences at a time with an emphasis on the power 5. (SEC,ACC,Big12,Big10,Pac12). You can track these players in your TBC Player Tracker. Some players you may want to track ... Torkelson, Rocker, Servideo, Leiter, Kjerstad, Martin(s), Bailey, Lacy ...
