He has struck out 32 batters in 26 innings pitched, scattering 14 hits and four walks.  A First Team All-State honoree, Shore was the Metro Player of the Year as a junior and was a Rawlings/Perfect Game Preseason High School Third Team All-America selection.

THE PRAISE

“Shore is the real deal,” said Jeff Stoll, head coach at Champlin Park (Champlin, Minn.). “He throws hard, but he’s got a nasty slider and a good change-up too. He’s tough to hit and he doesn’t walk many batters.”

THE FUTURE: Shore has signed with Florida.
