Faster2First 14U All-Stars to Watch
The Faster2First Player Showcase is only 10 days away, but already excitement is building for the level of talent expected at the event to be held in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

More than 200 elite players from around the country--from as far away as California and New York--will work out at the player showcase kicking off Friday, Dec. 9 and running through Sunday, Dec. 11.

Participants will receive individual testing, analysis and instruction as well as playing games which will be streamed live on Sunday here on FloSoftball. You won't want to miss seeing many of the top 2019, 2020 and 2021 players in the country!

There will also be a 14U and 12U All-Star game held on Saturday, Dec. 10 with 25 players on each team. About 20 spots for each age division are filled, but 5-6 openings will be held for camp attendees who impress and will be invited to play in each game.

Note: there are still some spots open for Faster2First; to register, go to Faster2First.com for more info.

Also, there will be a "F2F FAB 50" list of players who impress at the event as chosen by event staff and FloSoftball.

Here is the list of 20 confirmed 14U All-Stars with their position(s), grad year, club team, home state and recruiting status… the talent is so good, seven of the 20 were 2020 Hot 100 honorees and the talent is widespread, coming from six states: Florida, Georgia, New York, North Carolina, Texas and Virginia.
