Matt Hamel, SS, CBA (Albany), NY (2015)
Hamel stands 6-foot-0, 165-pounds with an athletic build, and room to grow. From the infield he gets to the ball quick evidenced by his 4.28 pro agility time (5-10-5), playing around the ball and through it. He fields the ball out in front, quick clean exchange, short arm action, throws from a mid-3/4 slot at 79 mph with accurate carry. Moves well around the bag showing MIF instincts. At the plate he uses a back knee lift and load, short powerful path to the ball evidenced by his 93 mph exit velocity. Bat plane is slightly inclined, long extension out in front, high balanced finish.

Hamel has definitely flown under the radar and is without a doubt one of our top athletes from our PBR NY events this year. This CBA baseball, football AND basketball standout has all the tools to play shortstop at the next level. His athleticism is above average shown by his 4.28 pro agility time (5-10-5). On the offensive side of the ball he displayed pop from the left side of the plate resulting in a 93 mph exit velocity while showing great discipline spraying the ball with ease to all fields.

Hamel is not only a standout on the field but also in the classroom scoring extremely high on his SAT’s along with being a top student in his class at Christian Brothers Academy. Hamel is an unsigned senior with tremendous upside.
