Preseason All-State: Hitter Reports

On February 3, Showtime Sports Academy hosted some of the top uncommitted players in the state across 4 graduating classes (with all 4 grad classes represented on the below statistical standouts).  Position players began the day by running a 60, getting their exit velocity, taking a 10-round swing of BP and going through defensive evaluations.  To read evaluations of every position player, read below!



60: 7.59, IF Velo: 82, Exit Velo: 93

6-4, 230-pound 1B was a Future Games participant last year and showed off his continued improvement, leading all hitters and setting his new personal high w/ a 93 exit velocity.  Prototypical corner IF frame, tall, athletic, w/ well-proportioned present strength.  Close to mature, has a chance to be a monster physically.  Offensively, hits w/ an open, slightly crouched stance w/ hand rhythm into stride to square and proper load.  Simple, repeatable swing for someone of his power caliber.  Power first approach w/ some length, ball jumps off the barrel.  Tools to be a presence in the box.  Present power to all fields, chance to be a big-time power bat at the next level.  Defensively, moves well at first base w/ soft hands, good footwork and projectable above average arm strength, as he was up to 84 on the mound.
