Before he began to generate all the hype, Schoop was busy playing on the backfields of Ed Smith Stadium — going unnoticed by the casual fan. After watching Schoop for three games, I was so impressed I posted a full scouting report on July 1, 2010. Months later he was listed on nearly every O’s top 10 prospects list.
The Shorebirds have released their 2011 roster, including: Michael Ohlman, Justin Dalles, Manny Machado, Mychal Givens, Jonathan Schoop, Brenden Webb, Trent Mummey, Jarret Martin, Luis Noel, Tim Berry and more.
