West Virginia Scout Blog Slide

In an effort to continually provide college coaches, pro scouts, players, parents and fans with in depth information on prospects across the state, Prep Baseball Report introduced a new feature, "The West Virginia Scout Blog" in April of 2014. Reports from our team of scouts are updated frequently with scouting notes and information from around the state. Our scouts report regularly on prospects they have seen in game action during the course of the previous week. Information on underclass prospects, unsigned seniors and draft prospects also highlights the content. Pitcher velocities, pop times and home-to-first times are among the statistical information included in each report.

Following is a taste of the most recent addition to the Scout Blog:

RHP Levi Kelly (December 14)

+ 2018 RHP Levi Kelly showed the potential to be one of the top recruits in the nation in the Class of 2018. The 6-foot-2, 185-pound righty sat 85-87 while topping at 89 mph. He has a loose arm with tremendous tilt to his fastball. His 4-seamer displayed heavy cut action while his 2-seamer has arm-side run. Kelly also displayed a feel for his changeup at 78-80 and a 75 mph curveball. The breaking ball has 11/5 shape and sharp, late action that gives Kelly two college ready pitches prior to throwing his first pitch in high school.
