6/02/23

Going 4-for-9 with two doubles, a stolen base, and three RBIs out of the leadoff spot for Citius on Friday, Ziebell established himself as a guy to watch moving forward this weekend. Displayed a calm presence in the box, looking to do damage each at-bat. From the right side, has a slightly upright stance with a high leg lift trigger. Whippy hands that allow him to manipulate the barrel through the zone. Level bat path that produces natural lift. On defense, he was smooth with the glove at the shortstop position. Also showed off his range and athleticism in centerfield later in the day. Someone to keep an eye on as the weekend progresses. 

2/04/23

One of the more projectable swings belonged to 2026 INF Kyle Ziebell (Harvest Christian). Ziebell showed a loose, fluid, athletic right-handed swing that stayed on-plane and in the zone with the ability to manipulate the barrel and spray the ball around the yard. Ziebell has a wiry, young build at 5-foot-10, 145-pound that is going to continue to add strength as he matures and his right-handed swing should only ascend with the current foundation. The 7.34 runner also plays light on his feet on the infield, moving well laterally with steady, confident hands and a clean glove-to-hand transfer.
