Super 60 Participant: Kole Klecker

Paul Panaccione
Arizona Scouting Director

This is the 20th Annual Super 60 Pro Showcase.

This prestigious, invitation-only event features only the top draft prospects in the Prep Baseball Report’s expansive coverage area. Over the last 19 years, the Super 60 has become the most heavily scouted preseason event for potential draft picks. The primary purpose of the Super 60 is to give professional area scouts, cross-checkers and scouting directors a head start to the high school season. The event is for draft-eligible Class of 2022 prospects. 

The Super 60 Pro Showcase has hosted some of baseball's top prep talent while serving as the first stop along the year's MLB Draft circuit. Last year’s draft was a banner year for former Super 60 participants, as C Henry Davis (Fox Lane, NY) was selected No. 1 overall by the Pittsburgh Pirates. Davis attended the 2018 Super 60 showcase, alongside RHP Ryan Cusick (Avon Old Farms, CT), who also heard his name called in the first round of the 2021 MLB Draft. Additionally, four Super 60 alumni were drafted within the first three rounds of this year's draft: SS Noah Miller (Ozaukee, WI), RHP Spencer Schwellenbach (Saginaw Heritage, MI), C Carter Jensen (Park Hill, MO), and 3B Alex Binelas (Oak Creek, WI).

In total, the Super 60 hosted 29 players who were ultimately selected in the 2021 MLB Draft. The '21 draftees soon joined the likes of Gavin Lux (Kenosha Indian Trail, WI), Evan White (Gahanna Lincoln, OH), Jarred Kelenic (Waukesha West, WI), and Alek Thomas (Mount Carmel, IL) as former, recent Super 60 participants who have since begun to thrive in the pro ball setting.

The Super 60 will be held on Sunday, February 6.

Today, we highlight one of Arizona's Super 60 participants: #3 overall ranked and TCU commit, 2022 RHP Kole Klecker (Hamilton).

Kole Klecker RHP / 1B / Hamilton, AZ / 2022

6-foot-2 190 pounds, Kole Klecker is no doubt one of the top arms in the south west. Klecker came onto the scene early in his high school career as a strike thrower of three pitches, with a mid 80s FB that had the looks of a pitch that could gain some velocity with development. The development happened, and the FB took a bump in velocity with it. Klecker is now sitting in the low 90s with an electric FB, and a SL/CH to go along with it. Klecker had an impressive spring season in 2021, but the biggest outing of the year came on the biggest stage. He made a relief appearance for the Huskies in a tight State Semi-Final matchup vs a hungry and fearless Alhambra lineup. Klecker put a halt to the offense Alhambra had rolling in the late innings, and gave his team a chance to win a ball game late. 

With his senior season ahead of him, Klecker will take on a starting role for the top team in the state, as Coach Woods and the Huskies make another run towards a State Title. We're very excited to have Klecker joining us in Chicago for the Super 60, where he will be given an opportunity to enhance his already high stock.
