Super 60 Pro Showcase statistics and overview

By Sean Duncan
Executive Director

The 11th Annual Super 60 Pro Showcase delivered many impressive performances, too many to list here. More than 80 pro scouts, agents and media members were in attendance on Feb. 3 at The Max-McCook Athletic & Exposition Center's 125,000 square-foot facility in McCook, Ill. to see the top prospects from the Prep Baseball Report’s eight-state coverage area.   

Overall, the pitchers stole the show. Of the 26 pitchers, 16 touched 90 mph or better, seven were 88-89 mph, and the remaining three were 85-87 mph. Not bad for the first week of February. RHP Zach Burdi (Downers Grove South HS, IL) and RHP Cory Wilder (Lima Shawnee HS, OH) headed the list, both topping at 94 mph.

While the pitchers were stellar – especially for early February – the position players showed plenty of athleticism. Sixteen of the 36 runners ran a 7.00 or better, led by 3B Spencer Gaa (Metamora HS, IL; 6.56 60) and OF Lex Kaplan (Ladue HS, MO; 6.63 60).

Positionally, OF Nolan Rogers (Bloomington South HS, IN) and OF Jake Ring (Grant HS, IL) tied for the best outfield arms at 91 mph, while SS Nick Kanavas (Brookfield East HS, WI) headed the infielder list at 87 mph. Catchers, too, showed high-level arms, led by Ryan Lidge (Barrington HS, IL), Tanner Murphy (Malden HS, MO), Brent Gibbs (Alton HS, IL), Cassidy Brown (Walsh Jesuit HS, OH) and Dan Jansen (Appleton North HS, WI).

Throughout the course of the week will highlight all the top performers at the Super 60. Here’s a quick look at who did what.
