Jacob Turner catching eyes of major league baseball scouts

The 6-foot-5 senior at Westminster Christian Academy in Ladue has accomplished a great deal since the summer of 2006, when he was 15, that might qualify as special. He could include his career 23-5 record and 1.24 earned-run average in that category. Or last summer's berth on the U.S. under-18 national team. Or a scholarship to North Carolina. But he might top it all June 9, when many analysts expect Turner to become a first-round choice in baseball's first-year player draft. (St. Louis Post-Dispatch)
