Lake Charles Fall ID: Quick Hits

Alex Armand
Louisiana Scouting Director

Lake Charles, LA - Our first open event of the fall was held this past Sunday September 24, 2023 at Barbe High School with our Lake Charles Fall ID.  This event was for high school prospects in the 2024-2028 classes.  Today, we continue our post-event coverage of the event with another edition of Quick Hits, which focuses on some of the prospects that caught our eye.  Be sure to follow us, on all of our social media platforms, for continued coverage of the Lake Charles Fall ID!


Uncommitted Juniors Shine

+ 2025 OF Gabe Greene (Dunham HS)

5'11" 175 lbs. athletic frame with present physicality.  Greene was headlined in our Preview Story leading up to Sunday's Lake Charles Fall ID, and he delivered his best performance at one of our events.  The Dunham HS product started the day off by blazing a personal best 6.57 laser-timed 60 yard dash, and then, showed an accurate and strong arm from the outfield up to 87 mph.  Greene finished the day off by taking a quality batting practice round, showing power from up the middle to the pull-side with a max exit velocity of 93.1 mph.  

+ 2025 INF Kash Martin (Westlake HS)

Physical 5'10" 190 lbs. frame with a strong lower-half.  Like Greene above, Martin was also featured in our Preview Story leading up to the event on Sunday, and he turned in a strong showing.  The Westlake HS product is a really good overall athlete, as he posted a 7.07 laser-timed 60 yard dash.  Defensively, he showed good hands and athletic actions with above average arm strength across the diamond at 86 mph.  At the plate, Martin took one of the loudest rounds of batting practice on the day, showing the ability to drive the ball from gap to gap, while recording consistent 90+ mph exit velocities with a max of 93.8 mph.  

+ 2025 LHP Anthony Jackson (St. Frederick HS)

Athletic 5'11" 165 lbs. frame with wiry strength throughout.  St. Frederick HS should be a contender in Louisiana's Select Division IV group this coming spring with a stable of arms that includes the uncommitted left-hander.  Jackson worked through an up-tempo delivery and moved athletically down the slope, before using a quick arm action to release the ball from a 3/4 to lower 3/4 slot.  His fastball sat in the 80-81 mph range with classic left-handed arm-side sink and run and he paired it well with a sharp "2-8" shaped low-70's breaking ball with spin rates up to 2371 RPM's.  Jackson also showed some feel for a firmer 76-78 mph change up with some late arm-side fade.  




Young Prospects To Follow

+ 2026 INF Konner Boudreaux (St. Louis Catholic HS)

6'1" 165 lbs. physical frame with room to continue to add strength.  The St. Louis Catholic HS product was one of the top overall performers of the day and is a sophomore prospect to monitor moving forward.  Offensively, Boudreaux keeps it super simple with a quiet set-up and load delivering a direct path to contact, while staying on-plane through extension, maintaining balance from start to finish.  He showed present power to the pull-side with a max exit velocity of 91.6 mph.  On the infield, Boudreaux flashed crisp and clean actions with an accurate arm across the diamond.

+ 2026 C Layne Baguex (Lacassine HS)

Physical 6'2" 185 lbs. frame.  Baguex showed some of the best raw power on the day, as he led the event in average exit velocity at 91.9 mph and max exit velocity at 93.9 mph, which is impressive for a sophomore.  The swing is still a bit raw at the moment, but there's no denying the present strength and ability to drive the ball to the pull-side.  From the crouch, the Lacassine HS product showed that he's an adequate receiver and blocker with a strong arm up to 75 mph behind the dish with pop times in the 2.16-2.33 range.



+ 2026 RHP Jackson Aumiller (St. Louis Catholic HS)

6'0" 170 lbs. durable and sturdy frame.  Aumiller showed upside and promise on the mound.  He used a repeatable delivery with a shorter and compact arm stroke to release the ball from a high 3/4 slot.  His fastball sat in the 80-81 mph range and his two-seamer actually registered higher velocities than his four-seamer, but it was his "11-5" shaped 67-70 mph breaking ball that really caught our eye, as it averaged 2270 RPM's and got up to 2347 RPM's with sharp & late break.
