PBR Alabama Staff

As we begin to close the book on 2022 and shift our focus to a brand-new year, we continue our tradition of highlighting the Top-25 Most Viewed Profiles for the calendar year. Using Google Analytics, our staff was able to compile a list of the Top-25 prospects whose PBR profile was viewed the most in 2022. Many of the players mentioned on this list produced at a high level at various PBR events over the course of the last 12 months. 

Beginning on December 7th, we begin counting down from No. 25 all the way to No. 1, which will be announced on December 31st. Kicking off this countdown, INF RJ Hamilton, a Vanderbilt signee that attends Hoover HS, comes in at No. 25 on this list.

MIF RJ Hamilton (2023, Vanderbilt) is regarded as one of the top sophomores in Alabama, and he showed well in a big area game driving home the lone run for Hoover. Facing a formidable arm, the former Future Gamer showed the ability to slow the game down in a hostile environment and deliver quality at-bat after another. Hitting in the leadoff spot, Hamilton reached base in the 1st on a walk, then barreled up two balls to center field in his next two at-bats with one being a RBI sacrifice fly out. Plays with plenty of bounce at 5-10, 165-pounds with a quick first step out of the box thanks to 6.69 speed at previous events. Balanced set up with a slightly uphill path and keeps the barrel in the zone for a while. Excellent makeup as well.

'23 SS/UTL RJ Hamilton (Vanderbilt) almost won the MVP at this past summer’s PBR Future Games, and he continues to perform at a high-level in all facets of the game. Hitting from the top of the lineup for Hoover, Hamilton was a spark plug and a catalyst for the Bucs this game and should be for the whole season. After being hit-by-pitch in his first at-bat, the Vanderbilt recruit got a rally started in the 5th that led to a big inning for the offense. He worked the count with two strikes, and pulled the hands in on the inner-half of the plate and muscled it to left field for a single. He quickly moved around the bases on the next few pitches via wild pitch, and scored to tie the game on a base hit. Hamilton, who is also a WR for powerhouse Hoover HS in the fall, continues to trend upward on the diamond.
