11 Mohawks Named in PGCBL Top 25 Pro Prospects

The 2016 champion Amsterdam Mohawks had 11 players named by PerfectGame USA in the PGCBL's Top 25 Professional Prospects, including three of the league's top four. 

Jeff Belge, a 2016 high school graduate who had Round 1-3 grades this spring and was chosen by the Boston Red Sox but opted to decline their offer and is attending St. Johns as a freshman this fall, was named the league's top prospect.  The 6'5 left handed pitcher had thrown upwards of 96 mph all spring.

Tim Naughton, a relief pitcher from North Carolina State was named the #2 prospect in the league based on his 97 mph fastball and 85 mph slider.

2016 PGCBL Player of the Year Joe Genord was named the league's #4 prospect.  Joe was a 19th round selection by the Dodgers in the 2015 draft out of high school but chose to attend South Florida where he ended up being their cleanup hitter as a true freshman.
