Shortstop Jurickson Profar made his major league debut with the Texas Rangers in 2012 after starring in the Little League World Series.
Profar’s two-run homer in the World Series final versus Thousand Oaks, CA, helped Willemstad win the 2004 Little League World Series.
He guided the team to the championship game the following year. With his 93 mph fastball, he received a lot of attention on the free agent market when he was 16, but only the Texas Rangers were willing to give him a chance to pitch every day.
In 2009, scouts Chu Halabi and Jose Felomina, as well as Director of International Operations Mike Daly, signed him.
He made his professional debut with the Spokane Indians in 2010, hitting .294/.294/.588 in his first four games before concluding the season with a .250/.323/.373 line in 63 games.
In 2011, he was promoted to the South Atlantic League’s Hickory Crawdads and had a fantastic season, earning MVP honors.
As the starting shortstop, he batted .286/.390/.493, driving in 65 runs and stealing 23 bases while scoring 86 runs, hitting 37 doubles and 12 home runs, and driving in 65 runs.
He was chosen to represent the United States in the Futures Game in 2011.
