The Super 60 is an invitation-only event  that features the top players in the Prep Baseball Report's 29-state coverage area. Over the last 13 years, the Super 60 has become the most heavily scouted preseason event for potential draft picks in the Midwest. The primary purpose of the Super 60 is to give professional area scouts and cross-checkers a head start on the high school season.

With the launch of Prep Baseball Report Nebraska, Tulane signee Mitchell Hagan was the first player from the state to participate in the event on February 7th in Chicago.  As we progress further into Nebraska high school baseball, PBR Nebraska is excited to find future candidates to participate next year.

Evaluation- Super 60 (2/7/16) Hagan is a 6-foot-3, 215-pound switch-hitting 2-way player. At the Super 60 event; Hagan ran a 7.64 60-yard dash. Slightly open stance on both sides of the plate. Upright athletic set-up. Clean pat path through zone with gap to gap approach. Shows equal power from both sides of plate with ability to make consistent hard contact. Exit velocity off tee of 90 mph. Shows solid actions in outfield. Projects as a corner OF/1B defensively. Angles are appropriate and shows good glove. Long 1-piece arm action. Solid/avg. carry to target. Would benefit from greater extension out front on release. 88 mph arm strength. On the mound utilizes a slight tuck and turn delivery. Over-the-top slot with some head jerk on release and falls off to third base side. Uses strong frame to drive fastball downhill at 84-87 mph. Throws above average curveball at 76-78 mph with 12/6 rotation and tight spin. Changeup was firm with split-action at 82-83 mph. Overall shows strong frame, ability to hit from both sides of plate, has options as a corner outfielder/first baseman; and should be able to eat up innings at the college level.

PBR: What are your thoughts on the Super 60?
HAGAN: The PBR Super 60 was an incredible event. The bat speed of the hitters and the velocity of the pitchers was exceptional. The size of the players, their speed and arm strength was impressive. I also really enjoyed talking to the players. It was a great group and we had fun working out and competing with each other.

PBR: Thoughts on the amount of scouts in attendance?
HAGAN: With the large number of scouts that were at the event, it was a huge compliment to the reputation of PBR and the Super 60 in particular. Every year, the event has grown in size. Obviously, professional baseball views this as a top-flight event.

PBR: Thoughts on this amount of talent in one place at one time?
HAGAN: The very talented field is going to be fun to follow as we go along with baseball. I'm sure that many of the participants are going to be selected in the upcoming MLB June draft.
