V Valley Christian - UCLA Commit. Medium, strong athletic build continues to swing the bat well. Really liked his approach during the game where he shortened up the swing looking to utilize velocity from the pitcher and just put the ball in play. On-base four times with three hard hit balls and HBP showing feel for the barrel hitting ball to LF, CF and RF. Showed off his above-average speed and athletic gait getting down the line on ball knocked down deep in the 4-hole (4.27 H-1st). Showed his base running skills and instincts when he advanced to 3rd on ball hit right at SS; great read and knew SS couldn’t beat him by going on contact. Defense was good as well tracking ball well and working to stay behind it; showed solid average arm on ball that could have been sac fly, but came up throwing and prevented runner from advancing.

3/5/19 vs Santa Cruz - started in CF and was on base three times with a walk, hit-by-pitch and infield single beating out a ball up the middle to the 2nd baseman. The speed is something that will continue to help the profile showing range in the OF and getting some good jumps on the bases.

3/2/19 - vs De La Salle - UCLA commit. He's got that attractive L/R profile and a wiry, greyhound type of body (with wide shoulders) that we see on many players who go on to success at the collegiate level and beyond. He's got a slashing type of swing and sees the ball well. There is some arm bar in his swing mechanics which can cause him to slap/slash the ball to the left side or if early can cause him to get around it on the pull side. That type of mechanic in a swing can work, there are plenty of players who have barred, but it also takes good timing on a consistent basis. In any case, the hand speed and athletic hitting ability is there. As a runner he moves easy and fluidly with light feet and clearly is athletic. Defensively there wasn't much action for him in the game but in pre-game his throws home were 87-88 mph. He plays with energy and has the look of a kid who wants to live at the ball field.

2/20 Vs Los Gatos - showed today why he’s ranked so highly in the 2020 Rankings playing a solid centerfield and being a lightning rod for the offense at the top of the order. He was on base two out of his four AB’s drawing a walk after fouling off multiple good pitches before going down and crushing a breaking ball over the RF scoreboard for a 2R Homerun in his 4th AB. He stands quiet at the plate keeping his hands even and tight to the body with a slow, controlled load into his back shoulder. Halpin rocks into his back hip with a slight foot lift allowing him to stay behind the ball and sync up his hips and hands producing late bat speed that showed the ability to create easy loft. In center field, Tracked down fly balls using an athletic and fluid stride showing closing speed and athleticism in the hips. The UCLA commit shows strength in his body currently with wide shoulders and looks the part as one of the best players in the State.

4/13/18 - UCLA Commit. 6-foot, 160-pound frame. Medium frame with wider shoulder build,lean, athletically muscular build; made for explosiveness rather than raw strength. 1-1, 2B, Run, RBI. Only 1 AB late in game. Shoulder wide, tall stance with small roll of hands around back shoulder. Slight load into back hip with hands moving back in timing; showed very quick, strong hands during with aggressive cuts. Barrel control and ability to go down in zone and use line drive swing with explosive hip that shows late reactions to pitches. Drove pitch into left-center gap with authority. Very quick runner (4.7 on turn for 2B) with fluid stride and ability to turn up/down speed as needed; glides on bases with limited wasted motion. Showed strong arm in pre-game with ability to come up and throw through targets with carry. Very intriguing,athletic player with high upside.

2/23/18 - UCLA commit. Halpin is a young player with exciting tools with an athletic 5-foot-11 160-pound build with growth/strength upside. He has a short swing with developing power and shows advanced plate discipline especially given his age. Went 3-3 in this game with all three balls squarely on the barrel. Defensively he covers a lot of ground in the outfield with mature reads on balls off the bat, possesses above average speed. Likely to be a dominant player among 2020 players in Northern California.
