Medium full frame still young and able to be tightened as he matures (7.40 60yd). Tall, relaxed stance with hands resting bat on back shoulder; controlled easy foot lift allowing to maintain posture showing compact and direct hands. Barrel works upward with loose easy hands showing full finish able to line balls around the middle of the field (83 EV). Consistent footwork on throws to 2nd base showing agile actions and matching it up with a strong arm (78 C, 1.92-1.98 Pop); throws consistently on the bag with life on throws. Catch and throw skills translate to the next level with high level receiving as well.

Uncommitted. 5-foot-11, 200-pounds. Strong, physical frame that is beginning to shed unwanted weight and adding strength. Heidal shows elite level catch/throw skills that are on par with anyone in the state. With pops in the 1.97-2.02 range with accuracy - his misses were to the second base side. Shows above average footwork on throws while exploding out of his crouch after sitting low with good hip flexibility. At the plate he shows a slightly uphill barrel path that favors the pull side. Consistently squared balls up during BP and in-game with great balance. Can be top hand dominant. Showing improved bat speed in recent viewings which is a tribute to his commitment to improving his physicality.

5-foot-11, 200-pounds, medium-large frame with some strength throughout with significant strength in the lower half. At the plate he incorporates a balanced setup with hands at the shoulders. Uses a compact load with excellent weight transfer and extension to drive balls to all fields. There’s present power in the bat albeit somewhat untapped. Catch-and-throw was the best we saw on the day. Sets up parallel before settling into a deeper crouch and is explosive out of the crouch. Arm strength is average to a tick above at 79 mph but the accuracy on the throws in the 1.87-2.01 range were eye-opening. Throws were on a line and on the bag. In a class loaded with catching, it’s easy to see Heidal - who has starting experience - positioning himself in the upper echelon of the class if the bat gets going consistently.

Uncommitted. 5-foot-11, 200-pound solid, medium frame with a little baby weight still there and very tough behind the plate. Heidal took some shots over the weekend and kept getting back up ready for the next pitch. I counted one ball getting by him, a wild pitch, with impressive blocking, receiving and catch and throw skills. His arm is fringe-average but it plays up with good footwork and an understanding of the game knowing when he may need to throw. He was regularly 2.0-2.15 with throws on the bag between innings in a spot for middle-infielders to put the tag down quickly. Heidal caught OF Coleman Brigman stealing in the game with a 2.01 pop time showing off that quickness and accuracy with the arm. At the plate, Heidal stands open with even hands a high back elbow, using a big knee tuck to start his load. The swing works on a slight uphill with a pull side focus and good turns from his back leg. His defensive skills are carrying tools now and if he can make some small adjustments with the bat, become someone teams will really want to see.
