Scott Hairston, 2b
Central Arizona JC


Hairston is the son of former big leaguer Jerry and represents the latest in a long line of family members who have enjoyed success in baseball. His brother Jerry Jr. starts at second base for the Orioles. Scott was rated the best prospect at last year's National Baseball Congress World Series as he led Liberal (Kansas) to the title, and he was ranked the top junior college player in the country at the start of the year. He lived up to the hype by hitting .503-18-77 while becoming the first player to win the Arizona junior college triple crown. Balls jump off Hairston's bat, but he's limited to second base or left field because of a below-average arm.
