Additional information on the players:

Mark Hamilton: Plus power in a nice looking left-handed swing. He is a big strong player that plays a pretty good first base. He also pitched, but his future will be determined by his bat. If he works a little on his body, he would be just that much more intriguing. His power potential is very interesting to say the least. He should be followed closely.

Times-Picayunne 9/19/2002:

TULANE BASEBALL GETS COMMITMENT: Mark Hamilton of Bellaire, Texas, has committed to Tulane and is expected to sign with the Green Wave during the early signing period, which begins Nov. 14. Hamilton, a 6-foot-3 left-hander and senior at Episcopal High, was selected to play in the Goodwill Series against Japan this summer in Long Beach, Calif. He batted .498 with 52 RBIs and seven home runs last season at Episcopal. He plays first base and pitches.

 Xavier Paul:   Paul signs with Dodgers

Slidell outfielder Xavier Paul signed a minor-league contract with the Los Angeles Dodgers. Paul, a Tulane signee, was a fourth-round selection in the baseball draft two weeks ago. Paul was an All-District, All-St. Tammany, All-Metro and All-State selection after hitting .394 with six home runs for Slidell this season.

Chris Worster  This is South Florida’s answer to Drysdale/Koufax or at least Everts/Kazmir as far as high school righty/lefty combinations are concerned. Worster has early-pick potential all the way. His body is ideal for a pitcher as is his arm-action. He threw consistently 88-90 MPH and showed the makings of a big league curveball and change-up. Worster also showed a precocious pitchability (like Maine) and the courage to throw inside. He’s all-around solid, with the potential for much more, though none of his “tools” jump out just yet.

Worster Named Top Pitching Prospect

Right-hander Chris Worster (Yellow Jackets) was named the tournaments top pitching prospect. Worster put on a display that will surely vault him up even higher on scouting lists. Topping out at 93 mph and living in the 90s has a tendency to draw a lot of interest. His breaking ball was also outstanding. Worster looks even bigger than the 6'3 listed in the roster.

Perfectgame.org website.

Phillip Stringer: Stringer has steadily climbed the ladder at SS with good instincts and outstanding actions that allow him to utilize his athleticism in the field. He can swing the bat and is extremely quick to the ball. He's gotten stronger in the last 4 months too.

Daniel Latham: Good tall and thin projectable pitchers body with broad shoulders. He showed good command of an 85 mph fastball and a live change-up. He also showed a 12-6 curve with a nice late break.
