DeWitt Watch

Friday, February 11, 2005

LOS ANGELES - Former Sikeston High School baseball All-American Blake DeWitt has been named one of the top 10 prospects in the Los Angeles Dodgers organization.

DeWitt, 19, who was a first round draft pick by the club in last June's draft, has been listed the eighth best overall prospect and the second best third base prospect according to Baseball America.

He is also listed as the prospect with the best tools in hitting for a high average.

The accolades came after a year with the minor league Ogden Raptors in which DeWitt was named the team's offensive MVP.
