    I'm calling him ROAR.
    All caps.

    Edit: Thanks, Jeremy. It's nice getting some background info from the prospect himself.

    Thanks Jeremy for taking the time to do this. It always nice to connect a name, face, and personality with a prospect.

    16. years. old.

    It's always hard for me to get my head around how young some of the athletes, actors, etc. are.

    Best of luck to him and thanks for posting this.

    Here is a scouting report:
    Netherlands ? Ruar Verkerk

    It says he is a "hothead". Good luck to the kid

    Bert Blijleven (Editor: maybe the Dutch spelling, which is cool)
    It is, and it's often written as a connected "y" with dots over it when in lowercase. The pronunciation is a long I, as in Blyleven. Fun fact: when used at the beginning of a sentence or proper noun, both letters are capitalized, as in IJmuiden, a town near Haarlem in Noord Holland where my grandfather lived until World War II.

    Seems like a pretty mature kid. A good answer about the money - it was "fair." I wouldn't have answered that either.
