Hitters 2018 and Iowa Select Black played a simulated game Sunday March 26th at Hitters Baseball Academy indoor facility in Caledonia, WI. We had the unique opportunity to capture the entire game with a FlightScope Strike unit. The game drew a large crowd of scouts (20-25 in attendance) with a handful of high school draft prospects in attendance, including: OF Jarred Kelenic (No. 2 Overall; No. 6 PBR Draft Board), 3B Alex Binelas (No. 103 Overall), RHP Max Alba (No. 106 Overall), RHP Clayton Nettleton (No. 294 Overall) and RHP Tyler Lewis (No. 370 Overall).

Prior to the game, Kelenic and Binelas held batting practice on field for the scouts in attendance. Both prospects continued to show why they are held in high regard in terms of their offensive prowess. Left-handed hitters, sprayed the ball around the field with ease and strength through contact. In-game, Kelenic was his usual self, proving to be a tough out. He showed an advanced feel and eye at the plate, routinely putting pressure on the defense. His best hit ball of the game was line a drive up the middle that nearly took off RHP Will Christophersen’s head, captured by FlightScope below.
