INF Cristian Ruiz (Oak Lawn, 2023), had a great day showcasing his defensive abilities on the infield.  Ruiz moves with rhythm and tempo on the infield, playing light on his feet which allows his hands to look soft and quick.  He utilizes multiple arm angles and smooth actions to field the ball when on the move and impresses with an 87 mph high across the infield. Ruiz flashed elite level infield actions and is a follow for the class of 2023.
