Top 2018 60 Times




 

By Jeff Markle
Assistant State Director 

PBR Colorado strives to be the most comprehensive source of player information across the state. The Prep Baseball Report is the No. 1 resource for high school baseball in each state we cover through our variety of events, boots-on-the-ground scouting staff, daily coverage, and multimedia platforms. Our multimedia platforms and events work in tandem, ultimately creating the most powerful source of high school baseball promotion in each state.  While other organizations take a national approach, our goal is to become the authoritative voice on the ground level of each state.

We recently did a series on the top uncommitted pop-times, 60-times, arm velos, and exit velocities. Now we are doing a series on our Top 5 overall numbers for each class.

Top 2018 60 Times:

Hayden Heinze, Rocky Mountain, OF
60 Time:  6.60
5-foot-9, 145 pounds. Bats and throws right. Heinze ran an impressive laser timed 6.6 60, the fastest of the day. Heinze also showed plus defensive skills in the outfield throwing 83 mph, and using that speed to show impressive range. At the plate Heinze drove a ball deep to left center and turned it into a 2-run triple, taking 10.75 seconds to get to 3rd. At the plate has a simple tall stance, short stride, hands start a little low, and a swing that wants to produce line drive/hard ground ball contact. He's short to the ball with his hands but gets good extension through the baseball. In the outfield has a lot of range, and throws from a high 3/4 arm slot with accuracy. 

Frankie Shearn, Columbine, OF
60 Time: 6.67
6-foot 170 pounds. Bats and throws right. Had a good weekend. At the plate stands tall with minimal load and slight leg kick. Most of his weight is on his back side at point of contact. Swing is slightly uphill with a one-handed finish. Would like to see him loosen up a bit, and create some more rhythm. Exit velo continues to improve, and was 82 mph this event off the tee up from 77. In the outfield has a ton of range. Arm velocity improving as well up to 78 mph. Last event ran a 6.7 laser timed 60 and this event came in at 6.67. 

Zach Paschke, Mountain Vista, 2B
60 Time: 6.80
5-foot-8, 145 pounds. Bats and throws right. At the plate stands tall. Nice and loose with good rhythm at the plate. Dives a little towards ball but but has very good hands through the zone with good extension and finish. Lower half has good rotation. Produced a 80 mph exit velocity off the tee. Impressed with how he plays the game. On a triple he hit ran a 11.2 home to third, and was a 4.2 home to first. Also ran the 3rd fastest laser timed 60 at 6.8 seconds. At short has good actions and range. Good glove to hand transfer, gains ground on throws from a 3/4 arm slot. Threw 77 across the diamond. 

Cade Kleckner, Pine Creek, OF
60 Time: 6.81
A 5-foot-8, 140-pound right hand hitting OF/2B who ran a 6.81 60.  At the plate He is balanced and uses a short stride to get his weight coming forward.  He shows quick hands and a level swing through the zone. Good bat control with line drives to all fields.  Exit velocity was 81 MPH.  In the field he uses his speed to cut down balls left and right.  He throws from a high ¾ arm slot with an accurate 72 MPH arm.  

Tanner O’Tremba, Cherry Creek (Texas Tech)
60 Time: 6.87
A 6-foot-0, 210-pound right hand hitter. O'Tremba has a motor that doesn't turn off. In the Top Prospect Games he went a total of 5-6, but what impressed the PBR staff was his hustle double off a routine single. O'Tremba ran a 6.87 laser timed 60, the 3rd fastest time at the event. At the plate he hits from a slightly open stance and uses a leg kick for timing now to come square.  He shows extremely quick hands to the ball, and good hip rotation at contact.  He registered a showcase best 96 MPH exit velocity (We have had at 97 in past events). In the field he is smooth through the ball and has a good over the top delivery. Ranges very well going back on ball stealing what looked like a no-brainer double.  He had an 84 MPH arm velocity from. O'Tremba is one of the top players to follow in the 2018 class.
