Ronald Sims
Mississippi Scouting Director


The Dulins Dodgers Scout Day took place on Sunday, December 17th at Sports Performance Institute, in Cordova, TN. The scout day saw fifty players from the Dulin Dodger organization take part in a pro-style workout in front of the Prep Baseball Report Mississippi scouting staff, as well as the Prep Baseball Report Tennessee scouting staff.

Sunday’s scout day was littered with some of the top underclass prospects from the North Mississippi/Memphis Tennessee area. In the days and weeks to come there will be complete coverage from Sunday’s scout day. Today, our scouting staff kicks off its analysis by taking a look at the top statistical performers from the event.

Mississippi State recruit, 3B/1B Blaze Jordan (DeSoto Central, MS) has been established as one of the top players in Mississippi’s 2021 class entering the event on Sunday. Currently ranked No. 1 in Mississippi and No. 2 Overall, Jordan continued to reaffirm his elite status, putting together a strong overall performance. The right-handed hitter showed off his electric bat speed and strength at contact, posting an event best 97 mph exit velocity. For good measure, Jordan also showed off his quality arm strength, jumping on the mound pitching 87-88 mph, touching 89 mph with his fastball.

Tennessee recruit, 2019 3B Ethan Payne (Germantown, TN) also put together a solid all around day. Defensively he displayed easy, natural actions at third while showing off clean hands with a quick release. His arm showed carry across the infield while being consistently accurate recording an 84 mph positional velocity. At the plate, the left-handed hitter displayed a simple approach that is balanced throughout and quality bat speed posting an exit velocity of 90 mph. Additionally recording a 6.9 60-yard dash.

Tennessee recruit, 2020 OF Kyle Booker (DeSoto Central, MS) had his intriguing tools on full display. The lean, athletic 5-foot-11, 183-pound left-handed hitting outfielder, showed quick hands through the zone that produced an exit velocity of 89 mph. Booker also showed off one of the better throwing arms from the outfield with carry on throws and a positional velocity of 90 mph. Additionally, Booker’s 6.9 60-yard dash time was one of the top times of the event.

A complete recap of the event will be coming in the following weeks.
