June 25-27, 2018 (NYS Games) 

60 Yard Dash: 
7.4
Exit Velocity: 
93
Positional Arm: 
85 & 82 (INF)
Wiry frame standing 6-foot-0, 170-pounds, with lean build. Short arm-action, quick arm/release, 85 mph with carry to the bag. In the box, even stance with medium leg kick. Plus bat speed at 93 mph, above average bat to ball skills. Slight uphill path, continues to improve the more we see him, next-level player.
Preseason - West (February 19, 2018)
Hendershot stands an improve yet still lean 5-foot-11, 165-pounds. He worked out from both OF and 3B Feb. 19 and really left a positive impression during the OF portion of the event. Traditionally a third basemen but showed a very natural transition and the arm works more free and easy from the OF peaking 86 mph with carry and accuracy. His fielding background helps as he shows proper fielding techniques and has the athleticism (7.05 60) to track down flyballs in either gap. In the box, he's relaxed, compact short path to the ball showing strong hands and above average bat-speed (92 off a tee). He uses a leg lift that at times gets himself out of rhythm, more reps should help keep his timing consistent and fluid. Overall, very good upcoming prospect in the 2019 class in NY.
