LHP Matthew Heiberger (2023) stood out once again in his start against 7A Thompson in a crucial area game with his team trailing in the series. Started off with a bit of a rocky 1st inning where he surrendered two runs on a double, soon settled in after with four straight scoreless innings of work. Started off working 85-87, 89 mph with the fastball, but pitched comfortably at more 84-85 mph in the later innings. Really found his breaking ball with typical ⅕ break at 71-73 (2100 rpm) after the 1st inning which contributed to his success. Also a 76-78 mph changeup a few times in the outing for strikes. Both secondary offerings complimented the fastball well. At 6-3, 175 pounds, the talented lefty uses a low-effort delivery with a high ¾ arm slot. Also an exceptional athlete who helped the Eagles basketball team win a 7A title as a sophomore.

LHP Matthew Heiberger (2023) is still working his way back into the baseball season after winning a 7A state championship in basketball a few weeks ago, but all signs point to the No. 9-ranked player in the sophomore class playing a big role on the mound for the Eagles. He was handed the ball on Saturday against a potent lineup with numerous players committed/signed to college programs. Heiberger opened up striking out all hitters and the side in two innings while pounding the arm side of the plate with an 87-88, 89 mph fastball. He matched that with a sharp, 1/6 breaking ball that was also located to the outer half of the plate. Hitters seemed to have trouble picking up pitches due to deception in the delivery and how well the FB/CB combo worked off of each other. For reaching 89 mph as a sophomore, Heiberger has a very clean, low-effort delivery and arm action. Coupled that with a projectable 6-3, 175 pounds, college coaches certainly have a ton to dream on in terms of projectability down the road. He’s also an excellent athlete playing usually as an outfielder when he’s not pitching and is a good basketball player.
