Player of the Week

Jonny Hatch 3B / SS / Bingham , UT / 2022


Committed: Salt Lake CC

Stats for the Week:
G 4 AB 16 R 12 H 10 HR 2 RBI 10 3B 2 

The Salt Lake CC signee led the state with 17 2B’s as a junior as he was the main bat in a loaded offensive lineup for the Miners. A 1st All-State recognition followed and he fell into an advantageous position to be scooped up this past fall to be a key recruiting piece for the nationally ranked Bruins of Salt Lake. Tall and lanky with weight and strength gains to come, look for Hatch to build off a strong junior season and be an offensive force at the 6A level. 

2021 1st Team All-Region and All-State

Pitcher of the Week

Maddax Peck RHP / OF / Bingham, UT / 2023


Uncommitted: Has Multiple D1 Offers on the table

Stats for the Week:

G 1 GS 1 IP 4.2 H 4 R 0 ER 0 BB 0 SO 11

Struck out 11 of the 14 outs during his start on the mound with an upper 80's FB. 


An athletic two way stud, that could develop either way in CF or on the mound, as he shows a fluid on line bat with hand speed and bat speeds of 20 and 67, though shows big EV’s of 93 and ran a 6.93/60 at the All-State Games. It was a catch in CF during the game that drew raves, as he leaped and crashed into the wall in dead center for a spectacular play. On the mound and with some time off, he reached 86, but has been up to 88 during the summer. The delivery is clean and the HTQ arm stroke is pure. As scouts say, “smooth and easy, gets better faster”. Look for big things from Peck as the spring HS season unfolds with increased college exposure and leading the way on the mound for a traditional state power program!
