This is an exciting new venture for the Rhode Island Baseball Experience – scouting reports for the Rhode Island Baseball Community written by players, coaches, parents, grandparents, or league administrators. These are players looking for some press, maybe to join an AAU program, maybe to get some local high school exposure statewide, and possibly the attention of collegiate coaches and pro scouts. If you would like your profile to be shared with the Rhode Island Baseball Community, send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or fill out the contact form at the bottom of this article. So, without any further interruptions and in his own words, I introduce: Ethan Elderkin.
Name: Ethan Elderkin
Current team: Bandits Baseball Club – 15U Prospect Team
Brag about yourself: Hello, this is 15 year old prospect Ethan Elderkin. I’m a very versatile player having experience on the bump (Pitcher), behind the plate (Catcher), in the infield and outfield. I attend Chariho High School as a Freshman. I am part of the Rhode Island Bandits Organization and I am on the 15u prospect team! I am a class of 2025 with a solid 3.6 GPA.
Ethan was one of the Bandits featured in their Winter Player Profile Showcase at North Smithfield’s Wide World of Indoor Sports, which took place just this past February. Ethan worked out in front of area college coaches and scouts in individual skill showcases like outfield throws to home plate. Here is a photo I took at the event, featuring Ethan in the outfield portion of the showcase.
Good luck Ethan this year with the Bandits Baseball Prospect team and at Chariho High School! And if you would like to scout yourself or a player in your organization, school, or league, fill out this contact form and send in a few game photos for the article. Thanks.
