3/16/24

Uncommitted. 5-foot-10, 135-pound, wiry, right-handed hitting two-way prospect. Carries himself with all kinds of quiet confidence and he seemed to shine the brightest when the game was on the line. Delivered a go-ahead two-run double down the left-field line in the bottom of the sixth inning with two outs and two-strikes. Also lined a single in his first at-bat of the day and flew out to right-field. Loose, athletic swing that will continue to tick up as he adds strength to his frame. Defensively, smooth infielder up the middle with soft hands and fundamentally sound actions. Also, shined on Friday night on the mound when he started the continuation of a suspended game against Brother Rice. Advanced mannerisms and confidence on the mound. Works fast, pounds the zone and seems to be in attack mode at all times. Fastball lived in the zone at 84-85 mph and went frequently to a 72 mph curveball with 11/5 shape and feel. Picked up the save going two innings, one hit, no walks and struck out two. Has all the makings to be a high-level arm down the road.

1/09/24

There is a quiet intensity and confidence that Baugh already exudes as just a sophomore that is something college coaches are sure to take note of over the next couple of years. Still maturing physically at 5-foot-10, 140-pounds, the potential two-way player showcases a winning foundation with the tools to match. Short to the ball and long through the zone, there is some present gap-to-gap, line drive strength with more on the way as strength is added. There is a chance to play multiple positions on the dirt along with a quick arm that produces a hoppy fastball that jumps on the plate even without the (present) gaudy radar gun readings. Coming out of a stellar Illinois power program at Edwardsville, look for Baugh to continue drawing the eyes of college recruiters who will like him more with each new look.

9/26/23

The youngest player in attendance, MIF Hunter Baugh (Edwardsville, 2026) more than held his own against an older crop of competition. Baugh, who is one of the state’s top-ranked sophomores, has all sorts of upside at the plate. He consistently works on the barrel from a short, rhythmic right-handed swing that effectively covers the hitting zone. Baugh’s quality of contact metrics aren’t there right now, but his natural barrel feel and pure feel to hit are, and his power tool should only trend up as he continues to mature physically. Aside from his talents at the plate, Baugh’s glove may be his biggest asset, with natural actions on the infield that should keep him there moving forward. He’s a smooth, savvy defender that’s comfortable and controlled on the move, working quickly and accurately to release from a loose, fluid arm stroke. Baugh has the skill-set to be an asset in multiple ways on the diamond and he looks every bit the part of a high-end prospect in the state’s 2026 group.

MIF Hunter Baugh (Edwardsville, 2026) is an intriguing prospect up the middle that has plenty of upside to dream on. Baugh stands at a lean, wiry 5-foot-10, 140-pound frame with room for added strength. Despite a developing frame, Baugh posted one of the highest infield velocities among ‘26 grads at the event (85 mph). During gameplay, Baugh impressed at the plate, showing off advanced bat-to-ball skills against older competition. Also featured an all-fields approach that translated to an opposite field triple among many other hits. Baugh is a prospect to watch as he physically matures throughout his prep career.

Lean, wiry frame with plenty of room for physical projection to come. Saw playing time on the IHSA 4A state champion Edwardsville Tigers as a freshman this past season. Highly advanced defensively with silky smooth actions on the dirt, should be an asset on the dirt in the long run. Loose, easy, and repeatable right-handed swing, banged a double off the left field wall on day one and got off a handful of competitive hacks throughout the tournament, too. Also a follow on the mound, arm works clean with fluidity throughout, touching 82 mph with his fastball, while pitching in the upper-70s and low-80s. A high-follow prospect in the Illinois’ 2026 class that’s still far away from reaching his ceiling.

6/28/23

5-foot-9, 135-pound frame with plenty of room to grow. Athletic frame, sat 80-82 mph on the mound, paired with 69 mph sliders that played off the FB well. Pitched for five innings, striking out six and only allowing one run to score. Clear confidence on the mound.
