PBR Illinois Player of the Week: 1B Bobby Seymour
April 26, 2017
Illinois Scouting Director
Mount Carmel senior first baseman Bobby Seymour has been named this week’s PBR Illinois Player of the Week thanks to outstanding performance at the plate last week for the Caravan.
The left-handed hitting, Wake Forest signee, was the offensive catalyst for No. 6 Mount Carmel, who went 3-1 on the week.
Seymour, currently ranked No. 15 in the Illinois’ 2017 class, had 13 hits on the week good for a .813 batting average. He also hit four home runs, three doubles, had 10 RBI and scored 13 runs to go along with the elevated batting average.
Below is a look at a video and scouting report from Seymour at the PBR Super 60 in February.
Super 60 2017 - Wake Forest recruit. 6-foot-4, 240-pound left-handed hitting first baseman, wide frame, developed shoulders and lower half. Flashed pull-side power at the Super 60. Quiet, simple approach, minimal moving parts, strength in hands, rotational approach, natural lift in swing. Recorded 92 mph exit velocity. Ran a 7.40 60 and was clocked at 73 mph across the infield from first base.
For his efforts, Seymour has been named the PBR Player of the Week for the week of April 15 - April 22.
