BERKELEY -- On Friday, California freshman right hander Jared Horn threw in front of a half dozen Major League scouts, as he went three innings against the Bears' hitters. He got a bit of help from freshman shortstop Anthony Walters to get out of a jam, but flashed a 90-92 mph fastball, touching 94, as well as a plus plus breaking ball, showing off streamlined mechanics that are evocative of another big righty, in 2011 second-round MLB Draft pick Erik Johnson.
On Saturday, Horn and much of the Cal baseball team was on the field before the Bears football team fell, 66-27, to Washington, hosting an unofficial visit from recent commit Quentin Selma, as well as official visits from 2017 infielders Darren Baker and Sam Wezniak, 2017 left-handed hitting catcher/outfielder commit John Lagattuta out of Davis (Calif.), 2017 outfield commit Connor Mack, 2017 right-handed pitcher commit Michael Weisberg, 2017 outfield commit Sam Cachola out of Santa Ana (Calif.) Mater Dei, left-handed JuCo pitching commit Justin Bruihl and right-handed pitching commit Chris Joaquim out of Petaluma (Calif.) Casa Grande. 2019 pitcher Peter Hansen of El Dorado Hills (Calif.) Oak Ridge -- offered by the Bears on Saturday -- was also among the visit group. Hansen came with his father, and stands at 6-foot-1, 170 pounds.MORE COVERAGE: CAL BASEBALL OPENS FALL
