2013 Representative Honors
It has been another successful trial process for Diamond Dreams with several players being selected to represent New South Wales at this years National Youth Championships. The following clients have earned selection in their respective age groups:
Patrick Glover – NSW U14
This is Pat’s first time representing NSW and has worked hard to achieve this. Working out at third base predominantly, Pat is an athletic player with the ability to play several positions and is a top of the order hitter with speed.
Flynn Stallworthy – NSW U16
No stranger to national competition, a former Cal Ripken representative, Flynn has also played for Territories and NSW in his two years of U14 eligibility and has been successful in his first attempt as an U16. Flynn performed extremely well on the mound with good velocity and command at times making it look easy on the mound. An extremely hard worker, Flynn looks to have a great tournament in January.
Josh Robbins – NSW U16
Josh will be representing NSW for the first time on the mound. A tall lanky pitcher with good arm strength and movement on all of his pitches makes Josh hard to hit. A second year eligible player this years selection is well deserved.
Adam Barbaro – NSW U18
A regular in NSW teams in the past, this is the first year of U18 eligibility for Adam. After spending time at the Australian Academy this past winter. A left handed hitting catcher, Adam will be a key part to the team. A long time player and now coach at Diamond Dreams, we look forward to watching him play in January.
Christian Eckberg – NSW U18s
A tall pitcher with a lot of movement, Christian is a first year eligible player who participated in the U16s last year. Hard to hit with long limbs flying at the hitter, this selection is well deserved.
Nick Eckberg – NSW U18s
Like his younger brother, Nick is a tall pitcher with a plus arm. Nick took part in the Australian Academy this past winter and will be a bit part of the pitching rotation in January.
Brock Jamieson – Country NSW U18s
This is Brock’s first selection to the Country NSW team and will be a welcome addition to the team helping them behind the plate and at it. A solidly built player with quick hands and a strong throwing arm Brock looks to have a really good tournament.
