MCC-Maple Woods head baseball coach Marty Kilgore is busy building the 2012 recruiting class, signing talented high school players from the local area and the region to play for the Monarchs in the 2012 competitive season.
Cam Johnson, a senior from Lee's Summit, Mo., plays infield and outfield positions. Although he excelled for Lee's Summit West High School as a football player, Johnson chose to play baseball for the Monarchs instead of continuing with football. Kilgore expects Johnson to contribute in many areas. Watch the video here.
Grant Woods, a right-handed pitchers from Smithville, Mo., will be a big addition to the Monarchs pitching staff. Already throwing in the low 90s, Grant played on the Kansas City Royals scout team this year and Kilgore expects him to contribute immediately on the mound.
