Like Adams and Bush, Broadway starred in the Cape Cod League last summer. Unlike them, he couldn't follow up with the kind of spring scouts thought he would have. He didn't match the power he showed with wood bats in games, though he still has put on a show in batting practice. He has been too passive at the plate, and at times his swing has looked long and slow. Scouts expected more than eight homers out of a 6-foot-4, 230-pounder, though to be fair he doesn't get much support from the rest of the Duke lineup. He moves well for his size, and his arm and hands are assets on defense.
