Dan Cevette
President, New York

Our "Player Spotlights" will be reserved for any prospect across New York who's abilities on the field have made some noteworthy recent buzz. Possibly a recent event where a Top Performer Spotlight article is just not enough, or maybe a recent commitment to a major program. Whatever it is, I'll (Dan Cevette) be going in-depth on the player spotlighted below with personal insight and honest feedback. Let's get started.

Quinn Hanafin 3B / OF / Sayre Area  / 2020

Love the high level motor, aggressive bat, and the progress he has made defensively over the past few years. This is a player that has worked hard on his overall game and he's really a player to keep a close eye on. 

SCOUTING REPORT: Standing a firm 5-foot-9, 180-pounds from a thick stronger lower half. Major improvement on his 60-yard dash from a 7.8 to a 7.44 showing signs of growth and athletic ability. Offensively- At the plate, relaxed setup with a small open front foot, hands back in a power position. On the pitch, back to even with a slight stride, compact and strong path to the ball, barrel path is on the incline with full extension, very fluid with easy power, especially to pull-side, 94 mph exit velocity off a tee. Defensively- high motor player that keeps improving, active lower half, gets through the ball with a soft glove and quick transfer. Arm-strength was 79 mph across the diamond (up 3 from last event) and there's no restrictions with the arm-action. Very sound corner bat from the Southern-tier.
