Adam Hachman LHP / Timberland, MO / 2023

One of the top arms in the 2023 class nation wide, Hachman did not disappoint in his outing vs St. Charles West last week.  He overwhelmed the opposition with his 88-91 mph fastball and showed a power curveball and a swing a miss changeup that was not needed much during the game. His fastball seems to play up as he has a low effort delivery and arm action and carried his velocity through the entirety of his start.


Addison Smith SS / RHP / Liberty, MO / 2023

One of the top young shortstops in the country, Smith ended his day with three hits to the middle of the field. The left-handed hitter shows and advanced approach at the dish and elite barrel control making him very difficult to punch out. Smith's movements are easy and athletic in the box and defensively where he glides laterally and shows next level hands. Smith also came in to close this one out sitting 81-83 on the mound.  

Ty Wisdom 2B / RHP / Liberty North, MO / 2023

Always an elite strike thrower and competitor on the mound, keeping hitters off balanced with a breaking ball that he throws in any count, Wisdom has made a massive jump with the bat. The left-handed hitter leads one of the top team in Missouri from the 3-hole where it seams like every swing he takes results in loud contact. On the weekend, Wisdom had multiple extra base hits against quality arms. Balanced and on time in the box with bat speed, the uncommitted sophomore was looking to do damage each and every time. 



Tate McGuire RHP / OF / Liberty North, MO / 2023

One of the top young arms in the country, the Arkansas commit showed off his athleticism this weekend by really handling the bat out of the four hole for one of the states top teams. The right-handed hitter shows a simple and balanced swing with a middle of the field approach using his long levers and strength to create advanced bat speed. 


Cole Chace C / SS / Blue Springs South, MO / 2023

The 6-foot-2, 200-pound uncommitted sophomore shined with the bat an on the mound this weekend. The right-handed hitter provided one of the few offensive sparks for the sputtering, but talented Blue Springs South offence. Chace shows a middle pull approach with some lift and bat speed. Chace showed off his arm strength on the mound in this one instead of from behind the plate, sitting 82-84 touching 85. 


Grant Hollister 3B / Blue Springs South, MO / 2024

Always sneaky strong with athleticism, Hollister has polished his game and turned into and advanced defender at third base and weapon at the top of the Blue Springs South lineup. The right-handed hitter barreled balls all weekend and played a flawless third base showing off an especially strong and accurate arm across the diamond.

Jackson Russell RHP / 3B / Belton , MO / 2022

The uncommitted right-handed may have not had his best command this weekend, but his stuff and competitiveness was good enough to keep his team in it. Russell featured a fastball sitting 84-86 for the duration of his outing as well as what appeared to be two different breaking balls. 


Anthony Fumagalli SS / OF / Timberland, MO / 2022

Newly committed to University of Illinois Springfield celebrated by bashing a first inning double down the line for the Wolves.  Fumagalli is a physical player with some loud tools, capable of driving the ball to all fields.


Aiden Watson 1B / C / Liberty , MO / 2021

The uncommitted 2021 left-handed bat showed physicality and bat speed in this one, including a no-doubt home run. Watson would be a quality add to any lineup looking to add some left-handed pop at the next level. 

Ryan Williams 3B / OF / Liberty , MO / 2021

The Northwest Missouri State commit continues to hit every time we see him. The right-handed hitter shows a knack for finding barrels with some sneaky juice. 



Gavin Wilson / RHP / Lee's Summit, MO / 2021

One of the top uncommitted arms in the area, Wilson filled up the zone at 84-86. Wilson has a long and lean frame and is still developing a feel for spin leaving much more room for growth. Pitching with a passion, Wilson was fiery on the mound all night.
