Rash, whose fastball has approached the mid-90s, has been at nine Perfect Game events since 2009, including four seasons in the popular PG Spring and Fall Wood Bat Leagues. PG ranks Rash as the No. 2 top prospect in the state of Iowa in the class of 2012, trailing only Bloomfield right-hander Calvin Mathews, who is also here this weekend.

Rash has verbally committed to Missouri, where he will narrow his pursuits to simply baseball.

“I wanted to play in the Big 12 and it’s close to home. I think I made the right choice,” Rash said. “I loved the coaching staff, I loved the pitching coach (Matt Hobbs) down there and they have a great campus.”
