Burkart showed very good strength at the plate with explosive bat speed. Homerun came off a 89 mph fastball. Player to follow.

6-foot-1, 195-pounds. Bats and throws right. At the plate has open stance, leg kick approach. Comes off as smooth and has ability to drive the ball through the outfield. Like his rhythm, and bat speed is very fast through the zone, and ball jumps off the bat. Strong lower half, good extension through the zone with 2 hands.  Had a 88 mph exit velocity off the tee. At ss showed good actions and attacks the ball. Gains ground on his throws with good feet and hands. Threw 81 mph to first base. On the mound is very deceptive displayed a loose arm with a slight stab out of the glove.  Arm speed was quick and over the top. Hides ball extremely well, hard to pick up. Good balance point all owed shoulders to stay level and landing to be square to the plate.  Fastball was 84-85 with slight run and good command both in and out in the zone.  Knuckle Curve was on display and registered 75-77 with sharp 12/6 break. Was thrown for strikes low and out in the zone. Threw a slider at 76 mph. Burkart finished his day with a 77-78 MPH change with near FB arm action and slight cut. Made the Junior Sunbelt Classic Roster

MaxPreps’ Freshmen All-American infielder in 2013, first team All-State each year, already being recruited by multiple Division I schools and followed by multiple MLB teams, throws mid to upper 80s with great knuckle curve, one of the most talented players Eaton has ever had.
