Long Island's own still listed as a GCL Met. Hope he makes a real team eventually. He's only 20, but I'm growing impatient.

In addition to batting left-handed, Maron’s game is similar to that of current Mets catcher Josh Thole. Both are contact hitters who rarely strikeout and exhibit strong defensive skills.


Thole exhibits them. They're just not on permanent display.

Hey now, Cam's an All-Star:

Hicksville, L.I., native Cam Maron was named to the Appalachian League postseason All-Star team. The 20-year-old catcher, who went 4-for-4 Tuesday, ranks second in the league with a .434 on-base percentage.


Also the fourth-leading batter in the entire system.

My boy is Sterling from Kingsport, and headed for Savannah. He talks to ESPN NY about growing up loving the Mets and now, like Mark Wahlberg in Rock Star, being one of them.

good for him.

everytime i hear his name it reminds me of the books I read as a kid with the main character was nicknamed Cam cause he had a photographic memory. I think they solved crime or something.

Maron goes under Toby Hyde's microscope, comes out ranked the Mets' No. 39 prospect -- in the Top 40, at any rate.

Maron is like Josh Thole Jr. Like Thole in the minors, Maron’s been darn consistent about it. Maron has a short contact-oriented swing to go along with his strong plate eye. He’ll never hit for much power, and even during batting practice does not look to drive the ball much.

Still, he’s a catcher and a chance for plus OBP from the position is really nice.

Maron moves well behind the plate, and believes that his blocking is the strongest part of his defensive game, while he still needs to continue to improve his throwing.

Also, he gets bonus points for growing up a Mets fan.

If he's a catcher with a good arm let's turn him into a reliever!

Cam's Sally League 16-game hitting streak (tied for second best of the year in Sally League, recently snapped) helped boost his average to .299, best on the Gnats and in the Top 10 organizationally.
