Soucia invited to World Power Showcase

Marcus Soucia of Marlborough, N.H., who led the New Hampshire Bobcats to a record-breaking season in 2016, has been invited to the 11th annual World Power Showcase at Marlins Park in Miami on Dec. 27-31. The event features the most prolific amateur players from around the world and provides a center stage in front of baseball's top evaluators during a live worldwide broadcast.

Players are selected by the Power Showcase based on ability, power, scout references and showcase tournament performances. Soucia, a catcher and shortstop, will represent New Hampshire during the Future Stars Home Run Derby and All-American Game. The All-American Game highlights a five-day, all-encompassing experience that includes MLB Scout Day, mental strength sessions and a welcome dinner and jersey presentation ceremony. A representative from all 30 major league teams will be attending Scout Day at Marlins Park. MLB stars Kris Bryant, Bryce Harper and Anthony Rizzo have all competed in the Power Showcase.

Soucia, entering his freshman year at Keene High School, batted .561 with a league-leading 11 triples and fashioned a 19-game hitting streak. On the mound, he posted a 9-0 record with 1.80 ERA and tossed a no-hitter against the Plympton Crush. He led the Bobcats to their first 13u New England Elite Baseball Championship, culminating with an 8-5 win against the Nor'Easters at Tufts University. The Bobcats posted a 32-3 overall record, including tournament championships at LeLacheur Stadium in Lowell, Mass., and the Memorial Day weekend title in Manchester, N.H.
