Scouting Report  
Hendershot, a staple at many underclass events here in NY, has steadily climbed through the rankings. The 3B sports a physical build at 6-foot-2, 202 pounds with a more then respectable
7.10 60 time for a corner infielder. Defensively- Ranges well to his glove side range while consistently squaring up with his target. Can make the play on the move or set and let loose throws that have peaked in the upper 80's to 91 MPH across the diamond. Athleticism and bat easily can transition to a corner OF spot if needed. Offensively- Displays quiet timing mechanisms with a balanced approach that allows him to drive the gaps with some lift to his pull side. Mid to upper 90's exit velocity, peaking at a 100 MPH leaves him plenty of room to grow into a full- fledged power hitter.

What to Expect 
"Hendershot, much like last year's Super 60 participant Dan Dallas (Canisius HS/ 7th round pick; San Diego Padres) is an under-the-radar type player (in a professional sense) who has put a ton of work in behind the scenes and is ready to be cast upon the national spotlight. Expect similar measurable numbers as he matches up with some of the best high school talent in the country, possibly even an improvement in his footspeed as that has been a recent focus. We are excited to be there with him on Sunday in Illinois as he gets an opportunity to have his name circled on a few scouts' clipboards."
