Ethan Hindle is currently the second-ranked player in Wisconsin’s 2023 class after multiple eye-popping performances throughout the summer circuit - especially at the PBR Future Games. A recent Kentucky commit, Hindle jumped all over a middle-in fastball and launched it directly over the center field fence for a home run during the 3:30 slate. He’s a high octane offensive threat and we’re eager to see what he does throughout the weekend at our PBR at The Rock Fall Championships with STiKS Academy’s 2023 squad.


“Hindle's huge summer culminated in an invitation to the PBR Future Games, where he represented Team Wisconsin especially well, eventually earning himself a commitment to Kentucky in the weeks that followed that event. His whippy right-handed swing generates impact that produced gap-to-gap power potential regularly – he homered in his first game on Team Wisconsin. Additionally, Hindle is a highly athletic prospect and a 6.68 runner, and that athleticism translates effectively to the left side of the infield, and he's continued to improve his arm action and arm strength at an impressive rate. Regardless of his future on the infield defensively, his gains from the batter's box have Hindle's prospect stock pointed way up, now the No. 2-ranked player in Wisconsin.”


Hindle entered the PBR Future Games with a head of steam, after a couple of standout weekends at LakePoint and Creekside as part of PBR tournaments. On Wednesday, during the workout portion of the Future Games he maintained that momentum by showcasing a loose barrel from the right-handed batters box. Hindle has earned a reputation as one of the state’s top athletes, and he started his day by running a 6.68 in the 60-yard dash to reiterate that notion. In between now and this past March he has shown improvement defensively, particularly in his arm action, which added a couple of ticks of velocity topping out at 84 mph across the infield.
