    Shortstop Kelby Tomlinson starred for two years at Seward County (Kan.) CC and then in the Jayhawk League last summer, where he rated as the top position prospect and led Liberal to the National Baseball Congress World Series championship. His speed is his only plus tool, but he's a steady defender at short and has a patient approach at the plate. A 6-foot-3, 175-pound righthanded hitter, he'll never have much pop and will need to get stronger so pitchers won't pound him inside in pro ball.
