2013 Super 60 Statistics

Overall, the pitchers stole the show. Of the 26 pitchers, 16 touched 90 mph or better, seven were 88-89 mph, and the remaining three were 85-87 mph. Not bad for the first week of February. RHP Zach Burdi (Downers Grove South HS, IL) and RHP Cory Wilder (Lima Shawnee HS, OH) headed the list, both topping at 94 mph.

While the pitchers were stellar – especially for early February – the position players showed plenty of athleticism. Sixteen of the 36 runners ran a 7.00 or better, led by 3B Spencer Gaa (Metamora HS, IL; 6.56 60) and OF Lex Kaplan (Ladue HS, MO; 6.63 60).

Positionally, OF Nolan Rogers (Bloomington South HS, IN) and OF Jake Ring (Grant HS, IL) tied for the best outfield arms at 91 mph, while SS Nick Kanavas (Brookfield East HS, WI) headed the infielder list at 87 mph.
