Blue Wave 18U posted a perfect 3-0 record to finish first in their pool in the Under Armour SoCal Classic Showcase OCT 27-29 in Southern California that featured 72 of the top upper-class division teams in the region.

Two Blue Wave players were also highlighted in the scouting blog for recruiters:
#19 Jonathon Long – INF 2020
Athletic build, good hands at 3B, strong arm across diamond, has the ability to make plays on the run, good barrel to ball, contact hitter with some gap power.
#4 Garrett Shumaker – 3B 2019
Strong lower half. Hits from behind the baseball with a pullside approach that elevates the baseball. Sneaky pullside pop from some good bat speed.
During team testing, several Blue Wave players also made the leader board: Anthony Chiaramonte (85 MPH raw arm velocity); Michael Muranaka (85 MPH raw arm velocity: Matt Lawrence (89 MPH bat exit velocity); and Jason Carrig (86 MPH bat exit velocity).
