Mid Mississippi Classic: Day 2 & 3 Action

Ronald Sims
Mississippi Scouting Director

JACKSON - Although the weather conditions made it difficult to get games in this weekend, the level of competition at this year's Mid Mississippi Classic cannot be understated, as several of the top team in Mississippi and Alabama took the field. On Friday several teams where rained out while others were able to find alternate facilities to get play in. Our scouting staff was able to catch Faith Acadmey (AL) and Madison Central, as they played at Milsaps College due to field conditions in Madison. Saturday matchup's stayed pretty much on schedule and allowed our staff to sit in on Germantown High where the talent rich rosters where on full display. Today we look at a few prospects we were able to catch in action. 

Jacob Payne, RHP,  Madison Central, 2020
Approximately 6-foot-1, 175-pounds, with an athletic frame. The right-hander works from a high-¾ slot with a short, clean arm swing, his fastball flashed life with at 84-87 in the first. He spun his curveball for strikes with 11/5 shape at 70-73 mph, occasionally with sharper bite. Efficient in the zone with his fastball, locating to both sides of the plate. He allowed one hit and one run over five innings, striking out seven.
