Brian Dopirak, 1b

School: Dunedin (Fla.) HS. Class: Sr.
Hometown: Crystal Beach, Fla.
B-T: R-R Ht.: 6-4 Wt.: 225 Birthdate: 12/20/83
College Commitment: St. Petersburg (Fla.) JC.
Scouting Report: Dopirak can launch balls better than anyone in the draft, though he's still viewed as a hit-or-miss player who could hit 50 homers in the majors or wash out in Double-A. He's more of a free swinger than Fielder and his ability to make contact is uncertain. He's also less polished defensively than Fielder, and his body isn't particularly toned. He likes to show off his tattoos, which doesn't always endear him to scouts, but there's no denying his bat speed. A potential supplemental first-rounder, Dopirak almost certainly will sign rather than attend St. Petersburg JC.
