Chart: Coon Rapids' Shore learns from Rochester Century's Brown

  • Updated: June 11, 2012 - 11:36 PM

FAIR TO COMPARE? SHORE HOPES SO

There were few names players around the state unanimously considered baseball's best. Among them were Metro Player of the Year Logan Shore and, to Shore's delight, Rochester Century pitcher Mitch Brown.

The two have become nationally touted prospects for their 90-plus-mile-per-hour fastballs.

Shore paid close attention to Brown's senior season for several reasons. He admires the older pitcher, the two were finalists for Minnesota Gatorade Baseball Player of the Year and he was interested in Brown's MLB draft stock.

The pitchers have become friends and regularly text back and forth.

"I had a lot of questions for him [about] what to expect in the draft and how to handle that," Shore said. "He works extremely hard. I think I need to get on [Brown's training routine]. He's doing something right."

Here is a look at Shore and Brown:
