Me too and I hope we keep it up. I've always preferred high schoolers over college guys. It seems like most of the superstars in MLB were drafted out of high school.
It may seem that way, but actually the most successful MLB players are on average drafted out of college. There have been several studies looking into this. College players (specifically bats are more likely to turn out to be solid regulars as well as stars).
College Bats > College Pitchers > HS bats > HS Pitchers
in terms of predictability of success rate.
