Director, New York

In New York's 2016 class we have seen 50 players from events run a 7-flat 60-yard dash or better. 21 of those 50 prospects are verbally committed to play baseball at the next-level, eight of those 13are headed to D1 programs. Simply put, foot-speed is an important ingredient for success at the next-level.

Offensively - stealing bases, extra-base hits, making defenses uncomfortable, changing the tempo of the game, are all benefits of a speedy prospect. Defensively - speed covers ground and the more ground your defense can cover the more outs they will record.

Here's a look at the Top Five Speedy Prospects In New York's 2016 Class.
