Top-10 Profiles of 2020: No. 6 Anthony Fincher


Diego Solares
Staff Writer

As the year

starts to unwind, our staff will start to highlight the top-10 most viewed profiles from 2020 - starting at 10 and counting down.

Our sixth most viewed profile of 2020 is Blue Valley’s Anthony Fincher, a 6-foot-4, 185-pound prospect ranked 53rd overall in the state’s 2022 class. We saw him this past October at our MOKAN Fall Upperclass Games, where he showed off his skills on both sides of the ball. There is more upside on the mound, however, with a high-70s fastball, that’s touched 80 mph, and a breaking ball that’s flashed tight spin.

You can find his profile, with video and stats, below:
