Utah Player and Pitcher of the Week: Week 5

Player of the Week

Mic Paul OF / Olympus, UT / 2022

 

 Commitment: Louisiana State U

 G 3 AB 8 R 7 H 6 HR 2 RBI 5 BB 3 SB 5 

The 5 SB were in one game!

Paul came into the Super 60 ready to show why he has been highly regarded in the state of Utah and by Jay Johnson and his staff at LSU. Paul who has ran anywhere from a 6.54-6.65/60 at various state events, turned in a 6.7/60 and smashed LD's to all fields in BP. showing a simpler and quieter load than in the past, where his back elbow would get steep in his load, he has lowered it and is more direct and efficient. The on plane path of the stroke was dialed in at 100% accuracy and it showed as he repeated and drove balls on a line w/consistency. Look for a big year at the plate and on the bases from a lead off table setter position in the lineup. 

Super 60 Participant

Pitcher of the Week

Hagen Bowen OF / RHP / Tooele , UT / 2022

 

 Committed: Columbia Basin CC
IP 7 H 8 R 2 ER 0 BB 0 SO 12
The Columbia Basin CC commit has improved his game every step of the way, over the last year + since he’s attended our events. A lean athletic build and room for added weight and strength at maturity, Bowen has more floors left to climb in reaching his ceiling. A strong accurate arm from the OF at 83 mph, Bowen also shows solid mechanics and movement patterns in his hitting stroke at the plate. Has a solid load and turn of the knob, into a good stretch from hip and shoulder separation. At contact, he hits off a firm front side and keeps his head behind the baseball. I look forward to seeing a strong spring from him.
