Shortstop Marty Maxwell of the Lethbridge Lakers is being touted as the top pro prospect in the Alberta Major Baseball League.

Maxwell, 19, a Lethbridge native, is highly regarded by Laker manager Ron Taylor, the ex-pro who will have his charges in the chase for top money at Foothills Stadium in Calgary in the major tournament this weekend.
