Future Games Spotlight - SS Jack Myers


Phil Kerber
Georgia Scouting Director

The 2022 PBR Future Games are less than two weeks away, and will be here in no time. With that being said, we would like to introduce you to this year's Team Georgia. We will roll out individual player spotlights with comments, video, stats, and more over the next few days.

SS Jack Myers (Pope; 643) burst onto the scene this spring as he became a mainstay in the lineup for 6A State Champions Pope. Myers is one of the most reliable hitters in the class with advanced bat to ball skills. The right-handed hitter can spray the ball to all fields and is as competitive as they come at the plate. He is able to fight off pitches, extend at-bats, and make the pitcher work. The ease of effort and confidence in the box standout. On the defensive side, Myers is sure handed and bounces around at shortstop with light feet.

Scouting Report

At 6 foot, 150 pounds with a high waisted, medium frame is an exceptional athlete. The swing looks to have been made to perfection in a lab, with swing mechanics so smooth you could put him in an extended spring training game right now and he would stand out. But his hitting approach has the same special qualities - his beautiful inside out swing is geared to hit backspin lasers to right center and he never loses patience with this plan. Myers takes away the outer half of the zone completely, forcing pitchers to come in on him where his quick twitch and ability to manipulate the barrel lead to left center liners. Pulling off the baseball is out of the question for this projectable SS. His patience helps him in pitch recognition as well, as he doesn’t get fooled with pitchers changing eye levels and easily adjusts to offspeed. He makes quick, correct decisions as a hitter. Jack shows nice footwork and smooth hands up the middle, with a quick exchange and accurate arm. He glides on the basepaths, and should end up a plus run as he gains strength.
