    Let’s name some of our local Kansas and Wichita kidsWho are made it big?

    And I’m defining “making it big”, as a Shocker All American like Mark Standiford (who didn’t make it as an MLB player) who was an NCAA Home Run leaderor a Top 5 draft choice like Darren Dreifort. Both of them were local Wichita kids. We also had one from Salina, I think.

        And one from Lawrence, and from Wichita Heights who became a 13 -15 year pro and now the Shox pitching coach? My memory is starting to wane, but there may have been more locally produced Shockers. These Kansas kids all came to play for the Shox even though some might have been able to bypass the college route.

            Good catch

            Nate Robertson is who you are talking about.

            Other local Shocker AA, and and/or Major Leaguers,

            Kevin Hooper from Lawrence
            Mike Drumright from Valley Center
            Mike Pelfrey from Wichita Heights
            Jim Thomas from Wichita Southeast
            Carl Hall from Derby (I think)
            Chris Wimmer from Wichita East
            Shane Dennis from Uniontown
            Mark Standiford from Wichita North
            Pat Meares Salina


            There are other local Shockers in the Shocker HOF, but I don't think they made became Major Leaguers or AA teams. If anyone sees any errors or players of note that need to be added, please make corrections

              • I did some perusing on the 2022 top draft prospects. We didn't have anyone listed on the latest Top 100 list. I didn't find Izzy on any of the lists I saw, but Henry appeared on the Top 200 list, with this scouting report. These lists include college prospects, and high school prospects, and also players like Kumar Rocker who was drafted 10th last year, but couldn't come to an agreement with the team who drafted him, so he was listed as Independent this year (he may have played on an independent team last summer). He had some rumors of a physical he didn't pass for one of the teams interested prior to the draft (elbow rumors).

                Austin Henry

                Henry is a cold-weather arm from South Dakota who lit it up. He’s long, athletic and physical already at 6’5, 215lbs with some projection still remaining. It’s a terrific pitching frame with long limbs and a high waist. He operates solely from the stretch with a near-over the top arm slot and some effort in the delivery. The fastball sat in the upper 80s, touching 90, but it was the curveball that stole the show. It’s a true hammer with hard, steep break, great depth and RPMs north of 3000 - arguably one of the best pitches in the class. Henry kept hitters off balance throughout his outing and allowed no hard contact.

                • Shox pick up a transfer commitment from Carter Rost of Bismarck State Juco in North Dakota. Went 6-1 with an ERA of 3.12 in 57.2 appearances last season. Had 69 K's and three saves as well. 6'3" 185 LB.
