Looking ahead

There aren't a ton of marquee matchups this coming weekend, either on the high school or college end of things. Decision-makers may split up on Thursday, with many heading to Gainesville, Fla., to watch Vanderbilt's Tyler Beede face the University of Florida. Others with toolsy high school hitters on their mind will travel to Missouri to check out high school multisport standout Monte Harrison.

With the Vandy-Florida series starting on Thursday (many college series switch to Thursday-Saturday series next week as teams prepare for conference tournament schedules down the road), directors and crosscheckers can still see a Friday night starter of their choosing. One destination might be San Diego State to watch UNLV ace Eric Fedde take the hill against hitters like Greg Allen. If they're lucky, San Diego State flamethrower Michael Cederoth will make an appearance out of the bullpen.
