Leikam came in as the closer to pitch one inning and demonstrated an 86-88 mph fastball and a very effective slow breaking ball that registered 65-67. He finished the game with two strikeouts and gave up one hit. He is an aggressive pitcher who challenges hitters and attacks the strike zone and he threw both pitches for strikes.

Good day for Leikam who has established himself as one of the top 2023 follows in Colorado.   Demonstrated arm strength and pitchability. The Valor Christian left-hander was attacking hitters with confidence. Fastball topped out at 90.2 mph from a high ¾ release. SL/CB was 67-69 to along with a  plus-plus changeup at 75 mph. Leikam produces plus movement on all of his pitches on the mound.

GREAT performance for Ben! The 6-foot-2, 195-pound left-hander topped out at 90.3 mph with his fastball, sitting consistently at 88-90 mph. Velo has jumped 4 mph since our November 1st event. The southpaw attacks with potential for +CB/SL and fastball with armside run. Still room for development with high ceiling. Top 2023 left-hander in the State.

Ben Leikam, Valor, 2023

LHP with a small side step into a toe tap. Has a high controlled leg lift. Uses a small coil at the top to generate power. Front foot lands neutral to the plate. Has a long arcing arm action. Threw all of his pitches with conviction. FB was 83-86 with low spin. Therefore had good sink to the ball. CH was 72-74 and CB was 64-66 with good action. Big frame with huge upside. Potential to add velo. Player to follow.
