FL Preseason All-State Spotlight: William Hagen
January 2, 2019
The Florida Preseason All-State has quickly become the premier Preseason event in the state of Florida. Over the first two years there have been over 100 committed players in attendance and counting. This event is held for the top 2019s-2022s throughout the state to kick off the Prep Baseball Report's spring high school baseball coverage.
We will begin to spotlight each and every player in attendance. Today, we look at 1B/RHP William Hagen (Eau Gallie, 2021). The two-way prospect is ranked No. 75 in Florida's Class of 2021.

10/17/18 - Uncommitted. Currently stands at 6-foot, 210 pounds with a strong, solid frame. Has been a standout at multiple events recently and continued to impress both offensively and defensively during the game. The ball jumps off the bat and he creates hard contact when he squares it up, driving the ball with authority. Shows some present pull side power as well. During the game he laced a ball back up the middle for a line drive single. Defensively, he shows solid defensive actions around the bag and made a couple of key plays at first during an inning, picking the ball twice on short-hop throws to the bag from the infield.
07/28/18- Uncommitted. Strong, solid frame standing at 6-foot, 210 pounds. Solid all around dfender at first base. Offensively, he has a lot of present strength. He could access more lower half strength with a somewhat longer stride, but he shows the ability to consistently find the barrel, flashing present pull side power. Overall, there is offensive upside with power potential. On the mound, he worked a clean, 1-2-3 inning, striking out one. He has a fastball that worked 73-75 mph and a changeup at 70-72 mph.
07/14/18- Big, strong frame standing at 6-foot, 210 pounds. Creates hard, solid contact on the ball and registered the top exit velocity of 88 mph in the cage. Has a small leg kick trigger and overall simple, compact swing. Generates power from a strong lower half, especially showed pull side power. Drove a ball down the right field line during game play for an RBI single. Defensively, he moves well at first. Hands and feet work well together. Overall, the bat has real power potential to follow.
2/17/18- Uncommitted. The only freshman to start for Eau Gallie and you can see why. He moved well at first, making a nice diving play early. He has a big, strong frame that will continue to lean out with age. He showed power potential driving a home run out to left-center. He will be a young bat with power potential to follow.
8/18/17 - 5-foot-11, 190 pound 1B/RHP. Offensively, the right handed hitter has some present strength for his age. He has simple swing and creates natural loft. As he learns to clear his backside and utilize his lower half he will have a chance to hit for some power as he gets older. Defensively, he shows above average defensive actions at first. He moves well around the bag and shows quality footwork with the ability to pick the ball in the dirt. On the mound, he worked 72-74 mph with his fastball, 57 mph with the curveball and 68-70 mph with the changeup.
