Notes

9/23/23

Prep Baseball All-American Game: A pro-ready frame at 6-foot-5, 225-pounds, Fountain stands out among his peers on the diamond. Relaxed, balanced load at the plate with a short path to the barrel and electric bat speed that generates real 70-grade raw power that will play in-game frequently. Advanced feel for the strike zone with patience at the plate give Fountain a chance to match average and power if things continue to trend the way they are. Above-average arm strength across the diamond with consistent carry allows the LSU commit a chance to stick at the hot corner if the glove and lateral movement continue to improve. It’s easy to bet on the athleticism and frame, and the makeup only adds another plus tool.
