South Florida home to 2 of the nation's top 10 baseball prospects

RISE Magazine released its top 50 high school prospects list this week.

Braddock shortstop Harold Martinez and American Heritage pitcher/first baseman Eric Hosmer each made the top 5.

Hosmer (6-4, 210), an Arizona State commit, is ranked 3rd and teammate, catcher Adrian Nieto, a South Florida commit, is ranked No. 18.

Martinez, a commit to UM, is ranked No. 4 and figures to be a 1st-round pick. He will likely be the highest Dade player selected since former Hialeah pitcher Gio Gonzalez was a 1st round sandwich pick three years ago.

The Voice of reason

Chris Marrero from THE Monsignor Edward Pace Spartans was the 15th overall pick by the Washington Nationals in 2006. His fellow Spartan, Adrian Cardenas was selected in the supplemental round (or sandwich pick) by the Phillies 35th overall. Those were the last two Dade 1st round picks. And surprise, surprise the last 3 #1 picks have come from Pace. A little fact checking or a decent memory will help.


Hmmm....wasn't Gonzalez drafted after his senior season at Pace High School...not Hialeah...

That is like saying Willis McGahee is from Miami Springs and not Central???? Hows about a little checking of stuff before posting....
