5/11/24
Big-time speed on display from the uncommitted sophomore on Saturday. It started early when Ward expanded the zone to catch a barrel at his shins and proceeded to drive it over the RF head for a triple. An impressive sub 12 seconds from home-to-third reaching top speed extremely quick out of an electric first step. Ward would show the present plus speed again, beating out an infield single at 4.02 H-1st. The outfielder uses an all-fields approach at the plate where the speed can thrive and create havoc on the base paths. There are tools for Ward to profile a high-level glove across the outfield as well with above-average range and good routes that are both backed by the foot speed.
