New Scoreboard Update - Top 10 New England Prospects for MLB Draft

May 1, 2017 - Futures Collegiate Baseball League (FCBL) - Nashua Silver Knights

News Release

New Scoreboard Update

We showed up last Monday morning to a very nice sight, the new scoreboard had arrived!

Throughout the week, the old scoreboard came down, piece by piece. Due to the weather, it wasn't completely down until Thursday. Now that it is completely down, the company is scraping the existing support poles and then they will paint them to freshen them up.

We expect to see the new board up by the end of this week! Stay tuned to our Twitter for the most up to date news on the progress!

The 2017 MLB Draft is Approaching

The 2017 Major League Baseball draft is just over a month away. With the FCBL growing in popularity and play level, more and more players are getting drafted each June.

This years draft will take place from June 12th to the 14th. According to New England Baseball Journal, three of the top 10 New England prospects are former Silver Knights. Max Burt (Northeastern) is #8, Mickey Gasper (Bryant) is #9 and Nick Angelini (Bryant) rounds it out at #10.

Eight of the top 10 prospects on this list have played in the FCBL.

Erik Ostberg (Hartford) is also projected to get drafted after leading NCAA Division 1 in batting average, but fell off the list due to a recent minor knee injury that has kept him sidelined for the rest of the season.

You can see the full write ups, and more from the New England Baseball Journal, and going to page 18!

Gasper Picks up Another Player of Week Award

Mickey Gasper, the reigning FCBL MVP,
