Hatfield has a strong physical frame with athleticism present. Showed strong hands, ability to move laterally behind the plate, and continues to impress with the arm strength and accuracy on throws. He will need to continue to progress with the offense, but the defensively ability is there and continues to show why he is one of the best catch and throw guys in the state. Virginia Tech commit.

VA/DC Committed Combine

Hatfield is 6-2 with an athletic frame that has some strength present and some projection left to it. He hits from the right side from a balanced athletic stance, strides on line, short smooth load back. Hips rotate completely with some violence and he maintains good lower half balance. Hands stay inside, short and quick to the ball, uphill swing path, showed a pull preference with some natural loft in his swing, some strength at contact, exit velocity was 92. Behind the plate, quick clean exchange, throws from a high three-quarters arm slot, quick arm, position velocity was 82 and pop times 1.91-1.99. Showed some accuracy on his throwdowns. Ran a 7.09 60 yard dash.

Athletic and projectable frame, with room to add strength to. Potentially one of the best catch-and-throw backstops I have seen in the Commonwealth in the 2021 class. Very quick release; arm is quick, short, and gets rid of it. Throws have carry and accuracy is advanced. Receives well, shows soft hands, nice hip control and blocking the baseball. Advanced defensive catching prospect. At the plate shows a solid foundation, not everything has synced up yet. Hits from an athletic setup, has a short and smooth load. Shorter swing path to the ball with some bat speed. Has a tendency to pull off of pitches on the outer half, causing the barrel to cut short on his swings. Shows some strength at the plate and power potential, just would like to see the hands-free up a little more to allow to work to opposite field gap more often.

PreSeason All-State II

Hatfield is 5-11 with an athletic frame that has some projection left to it. He hits from the right side from an athletic stance, short stride on line, smooth short load back, hips rotate completely with some violence, and he maintains some balance during his swing. Longer path but still a fast bat that is quick to the zone, good strength at contact with extension through the ball. Showed slight pull preference, slightly uphill swing generates some loft to his pull side, power present already with chance to add more, exit velocity was 90. Behind the plate, keeps body low and behind ball receiving, hands are soft receiving but holds strikes firmly. Gains ground towards second during a quick, clean exchange. Throws from a high three-quarters arm slot, short arm action, position velocity was 76 and pop times were 2.00-2.06 and throws were very accurate. Ran 4.15 home to first.
