Top-10 Profiles of 2020: No.3 Sam Kane


Joe Dattoli
West Coast Director of Operations

Sam Kane takes the No. 3 spot in the Top Viewed Profiles of 2020! The No. 6 ranked SS in Nevada, Kane has good tools defensively and can presently play anywhere on the diamond. With the bat, Kane has high Rotational Acceleration markers with Blast and a high overall bat speed for his '23 class. Would not be shocking to see the already solid 96 mph max Exit Velo to start creeping up in the future with those Blast metrics. Should be interesting to see what aspects of his play are improved most with increased size and strength as he matures.
