#RYAN Reckley received the opportunity to showcase his skills against the top players in his class across the United States.
#He was named to the roster of the Perfect Game 14-U Select Baseball Festival hosted last weekend at the Jet Blue Park Player Development Complex in Fort Myers, Florida.
#The fourth edition of the event featured the top 44 prospects from the national prep classes of 2022 and 2023.
#Players participated in a variety of activities, culminating in Sunday afternoon’s All-Star game.
#This year’s two teams were coached by former MLB pitchers Tom “Flash” Gordon and Tanyon Sturtze.
#Reckley and Team Gordon came away with an 8-2 win over Team Sturtze.
#He walked in the first inning and eventually scored an early run as Team Gordon grabbed an early lead they would never relinquish. They led 2-1 after three and 5-1 after five on their way to the win. After an hour long weather delay, the nine-inning game took approximately 3.5 hours to complete.
#Reckley, a 5’7” 145-pound shortstop, is a student at Global Academy and was the second consecutive Bahamian player selected to the festival following Andre Arthur last year.
#“Reckley is tightly wound with fast-twitch muscle, an element of his game that aids him on both sides of the ball,” his PG analysis said. “He’s a switch-hitter with present bat speed from either side, whipping the barrel while showing an advanced defensive skill-set, all of which equate to a highly intriguing international sign come July 2 of 2021.”
