POSTSEASON RECAP: After dropping the first game of the Great Lakes Summer Collegiate League championship series to the Grand Lake Mariners, the Lima Locos delivered two shutout victories, including a 3-0 title-clinching win to take home the championship. This was the Locos' third title in seven years and their fifth total. They now rank second behind the Columbus All Americans for most titles in GLSCL history.

1. Bailey Peterson, 2B/OF, Grand River, (So., Michigan State)

Peterson was voted as the top hitting prospect in the GLSCL this summer. As a freshman at Kellogg (Mich.) JC this spring, Peterson batted .473, finishing fourth in the NJSCAA in hitting. He also stole 20 bases and hit 11 homers. He followed that by batting .374/.455/.718, stealing 11 bases and hitting 12 homers this summer. He handled all kinds of pitching and hit the ball to all fields. The 6-foot, 180-pound Peterson is a good athlete and an above-average runner, but his defense is a question mark. He played both infield (mostly second and first base) and outfield this summer and wasn't better than an average defender at any position. He will play at Michigan State this spring.
