Name: B.J. Garbe
Born: in
Drafted in the 1st round (5th overall) by the Minnesota Twins in 1999 (signed for $2,750,000)
OF/RHP B.J. Garbe is the Washington's biggest attraction and its most decorated high school athlete. He made a name for himself last summer at the Babe Ruth 16-18 World Series when he led his team to the title and was selected the tournament MVP. He later was Washington's 3-A football player of the year--an endorsement of his all-around athletic ability. He's an outstanding two-way player at the high school level and was more dominant this season as a pitcher, his secondary position, compiling an 8-0, 0.55 record with 105 strikeouts out in 51 innings. His fastball was clocked from 92-94 mph. It's his skills as an everyday player, though, that get scouts excited and should lead to his being one of the first five or six players drafted. He has outstanding bat speed with a compact, level swing and great extension. He can run and throw with above-average ability and does everything with grace. Garbe also has a sense of theatrics. In one game this spring, he threw a shutout, struck out 19 and slugged a pair of homers.
