Scouts hear it all the time: "Hey, you gotta go see this kid play. Really!"
Once in awhile, during a slow week, they may take a peek. Usually it's a night out watching baseball, not much more.
Well, pro scouts, ya gotta go see a certain kid play. Really.
His name is Logan Gillis, and if you follow the Nashua Silver Knights of the Futures Collegiate Baseball League, you already know who he is and what he can do.
What he does best is hit.
Gillis has seemingly toyed with FCBL pitchers for one whole season and the start of another. He was the league batting champ last summer and has picked up right where he left off. He's been a .300 hitter for Bentley University. He has great baseball instincts, plays a good second base, can run, hit for power. What more does a scout need to know?
That's the question. Everyone associated with the FCBL and the Silver Knights thinks Gillis should have a future in the game.
