The Prep Baseball Report is the No. 1 resource for high school baseball in each state we cover through our variety of events, boots-on-the-ground scouting staff, daily coverage, and multimedia platforms. Our multimedia platforms and events work in tandem, ultimately creating the most powerful source of high school baseball promotion in each state.

Open stance, big leg kick trigger, solid balance. Uphill swing path with good extension out front. Good receiver behind the plate and had the strongest arm at 77 mph.

10-1-17
5-foot-10. 170-pound right hand hitting C/INF who ran a 7.80 60.  At the plate he is balanced and tall.  He starts slightly open and uses a long stride to load and come square.  He has smooth mechanics and and a slightly uphill swing path.  During the weekend he had several hard hit balls and finished with 2 extra base hits.  Behind the plate he is fundamentally sound and shows good skill in handling a pitcher.  He shows quick reflexes when blocking and a quick transfer on the throw down to second base.  Pop-times were consistently 2.10.
