Rockland County future Section 1 players

Rockland County future Section 1 players

Cut from Debbie Schechter's article on Rockland County future Section 1 players and travel teams in Rockland County.

Posted by: Debbie Schechter - Posted in Rockland County, Softball, Sports on Aug 02, 2011

I just want to make you aware of some really great talent coming down the pipeline to keep an eye out for in Rockland County who will be looking to keep the Section 1 tradition alive:

Starting out in the Rockland Little League, you don't have go pretty far, the New City Little League (Majors division) are in the process of preparing to travel to Portland Oregon for the Little League World Series.  Many of these girls play travel ball, a lot for the Hudson Valley Hurricanes, but you can't deny the talent level.  As far as pitching is concerned, I love the arms of Reese Guevarra (12U Black) ... I saw her pitch in our sponsored Tournament of Champions back in June, then twice in the state tournament. As a pitcher, she's got all the tools to be a star at the varsity level. She's got an arsenal of pitches and can change speeds with the best of them. And the sign of a good pitcher is how well you do when you get into trouble, Guevarra just bares down and gets the job done. Sound familiar? She's also their  lead off hitter and the girl can fly.  She's also versatile, she can play center field and second base as well.  

When it comes to the Rockland based travel teams, I always recommend you keep an eye on the Hudson Valley Hurricanes.  It's the home of many current and past Section 1 players including a few of the 2009 Pearl River state champions.  But they also have a lot of talented kids who are either budding varsity players or ones who are currently playing varsity but you don't know a lot about.

Keep an eye for these players.

Unfortunately, I haven't gotten a chance to scout kids in Westchester so if there are teams whether it be little league or travel teams.  Please use this post to do so.  Any kids that I should look out for, please let me know.
