Inside the Northeast Procase: 2022 RHP Gavin VanKempen (Maple Hill/West Virginia commit)

Dan Cevette
President, NY/PA

The Northeast Procase will take place February 20, 2022 at the Liberty Arena in Williamsport, PA. This event marks the 2nd annual event where committed players from NY/NJ/PA will be on full display showing off all of their hard work this preseason. Currently this event is shaping up to be the most talent filled preseason event in our NY/PA history with 85 players headed to Williamsport. Of those current 85 players, 17 players are committed to Power 5 conferences.


Gavin Vankempen RHP / 3B / Maple Hill, NY / 2022


VanKempen is no stranger to the PBR system having attended three events since 2020. The long limbed, 6-foot-6, 220-pound righty has made significant gains over that two year stretch. The current West Virginia commit is nationally ranked the No. 292 player in the 2022 class and No. 4 in New York. 

VanKempen uses a compact repeatable delivery with an average pace. High knee lift, hands break as the knee drops with a medium length back-swing. Shoulders have vertical tilt, fluid arm-action with a power 3/4 slot release. FB peaked 94 mph with low spin (1800 rpms). FB has natural arm-side fade and explodes late in the strike zone. He shows the ability to spin a tight breaking ball that has 10/5 shape and sits in the upper 70's. I'm fired up to see him at the Northeast Procase where he has the chance to raise his stock for the up-coming 2022 amateur player draft.
