Future Games Preview: OF Joe Acker

By Steve Nielsen
Scouting Director – Wisconsin/Illinois

The Prep Baseball Report Future Games is a one-of-a-kind event featuring the top 2016 prospects from across our 10 state coverage area. This year taking place at Grand Park in Westfield, IN from July 31-August 2, hundreds of scouts from across the country will fill the stands to watch some of the top uncommitted 2016 prospects across our coverage area.

Last year Wisconsin’s Class of 2015 Future Games Team went undefeated and has already seen eight Division 1 commitments from that roster. Over the next several months we will begin to unveil prospects who have been selected to participate in this year's event with a brief history and bio of the player and what we can expect from him at the PBR Future Games.

Joe Acker is strong armed outfielder from Marquette University who first made himself known at the Southern Wisconsin Prospect I.D last October. He then stood out again at the Madison Preseason I.D where he posted 97 mph exit velocity from the tee.

Acker shows quick twitch athleticism at the plate and creates excellent extension through the zone. His bat has the potential to play at a high level with loose hands and creating whip through the zone. Acker projects as a corner outfield type with a bat that could progress into a middle of the order gap to gap type hitter at the next level.
