By Greg Williams
Pennsylvania Director of Scouting

After drilling down into our google analytics we have compiled a list of the ten most visited Pennsylvania profiles on the Prep Baseball Report website in 2014.  Over the next ten days we will count down to the end of the year with a look at those profiles that were most viewed.

No. 6 Willie Burger

Willie BurgerBurger showed why he was the highest ranked, uncommitted junior in Pennsylvania with a solid performance over two days at the 2014 Preseason All-State Showcase. The multi-talented prospect showcased quick feet, a soft glove hand and a strong arm from 3B (84 mph). After turning in a 4.42 home-to-1B time, Burger showcased a 91 mph bat exit velocity during an impressive round of batting practice. The 6-foot-1, 210-pound right-handed hitter displayed a balanced swing with explosive hands and hips that allowed him to drive the baseball repeatedly with authority. Behind the plate Burger displayed pop times of 1.94-2.00 on throws of 76 mph out of the crouch.

Burger went on to commit to Penn State and will compete this spring at IMG Academy in Florida prior to becoming a Nittany Lion in the fall of 2015.
