EMERSON, GA—All eyes were on RHP Chase Burns (Station Camp HS, TN) as he took the mound for Canes Baseball Saturday. With reports of the Tennessee recruit hitting triple digits, a crowd of players and parents gathered behind the plate. They were not disappointed.

Burns came out firing bullets at 96-99 and against the third batter, he touched 100. After striking out two in the first, he settled into the mid 90s, but hit 98 in each of the four innings he logged and his last two pitches were 99 and 98. He kept his fastball around the zone and threw 76 percent strikes on the way to fanning eight. He didn’t allow a baserunner. While he used mostly fastballs to overpower hitters, he also mixed in a slider and curveball. The slider played more like a cutter, sitting 87-89 with flat action and minimal break. The curveball showed potential in the high 70s with sharpness.
