2016 was definately all about Colton Eastman.  The Cal State Fullerton freshmen put up the numbers and got rewarded for it. Colton was not only named as a USA Totay All American, but Louisville Slugger named him Freshmen Pitcher of the Year. I can speak from experience, I know Colton and I know the family, I have watched him since high school and he is the real deal.  He has the size,tools & mental toughness to compete and the highest level. His next eligible draft year, if he stays healthy, He will be one of the most talked about and highly sought after picks.
