ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFAthletics.com) – The UCF baseball team hosted its annual scout day with over 30 Major League Baseball representatives in attendance to see the Knights workout Tuesday afternoon at the baseball complex. Nearly every member of the squad took part in Tuesday’s showcase.

MLB scouts saw position players flash their speed in the 60-yard dash while also taking part in a pro-style fielding session and batting practice. The Knights concluded the afternoon with a three-inning scrimmage that saw nearly all draft-eligible pitchers log a frame of work.

UCF is three weeks into fall workouts, and will conclude the month-long training period with the Black and Gold World Series on Oct. 24-26. The first two games will begin at 3 p.m., while the finale is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Admission is free to all fans for each contest.
