Elite Prospect Showcase Preview: 3B/SS Christian Fedko

By Greg Williams
PA Director of Scouting

The 2014 Elite Prospect Showcase will take place on November 1 and promises to bring together many of the top prospects in the Class of 2016, 2017 & 2018 as well as a few talented unsigned seniors. Last year's inaugural event was highly successful with 18 players going on to make college commitments to date. Among those in attendance last year, 2016 OF J.J. Bleday (Titusville) was one of the standouts. The two-way prospect went on to make a commitment to Vanderbilt shortly after the completion of the event and was named this fall to the final USA Baseball 59 man roster for the 2015 18-and-under National Team Trials.

The 2014 version of this event is just three weeks away and the roster is filling quickly. Over the coming weeks we will preview those on the roster as well as those that are added prior to the registration deadline on October 26.

3B/SS Christian Fedko, Vincentian Academy (2017)

Fedko is currently ranked No. 12 in the PA Class of 2017. The 5-foot-10, 170-pound sophomore has displayed advanced offensive abilities and developing defensive skills that have him garnering significant interest following a stand out freshman season of high school baseball. The right-handed hitter hit .548 in his first season of varsity competition with 27 runs scored and 24 RBI.

Christian FedkoFedko gets every ounce out of his 5-foot-10, 170-pound frame. He has a high-energy approach to the game and has worked hard to improve arm strength in the past years' time. Fedko's 7.52 60-yard dash time probably will relegate him to a corner infield position, but his leg-lift approach at the plate and his attacking approach in everything he does on the field stand out. Fedko squared everything up in BP with an 84 mph bat exit velocity at the PA Top Prospect Games in June. He went on to go 2-for-5 in game play, beating out two infield singles as a result of getting out of the box hard and getting down the line with a purpose. Fedko showcased an 81 mph arm across the diamond, much improved in the past year, and strong enough to stay on that side of the infield at the next level.
