OF Kam Yearsley (Yorkville, 2024; John A. Logan) is putting together one of the more impressive seasons in the state so far, and this past week was arguably his best to date as he helped the Foxes to a dominant 4-1 record dating back to Saturday the 13th. On the week, Yearsley finished 12-for-20 with four home runs, one triple, three doubles, 20 RBIs, 11 runs scored and three walks. For his efforts, he has been named this week’s Player of the Week

In a 13-7 win over Metea Valley on the 13th, Yearsley went 2-for-5 with a home run, triple, four RBIs and two runs scored to start his dominant week. 

He kept rolling right into Monday in a 15-5 win over West Aurora, going 2-for-3 with a home run, double, six RBIs, two runs scored and a walk. 

The following day, they took down West Aurora once again by the score of 15-3, as Yearsley finished the day 2-for-3 with a double, RBI, two runs scored and a walk.

The Foxes finished off the three-game sweep of West Aurora with a 22-10 win on Thursday, as Yearsley powered the offense going 3-for-4 with a home run, four RBIs, four runs scored and a walk.

His final game was in a 10-9 loss against No. 23 at the time Glenbrook North, as he still went 3-for-5 with a home run, double, five RBIs and a run scored to lead the offense. 

In addition to tearing the cover off the ball, the southpaw also hopped on the mound and fired 3.1 shutout innings with just two hits allowed, no walks and four strikeouts. 

On the year, Yearsley is now hitting .500 with a .548 OBP, 1.604 OPS, seven home runs, two triples, five doubles, 31 RBIs and 18 runs scored. Currently ranked No. 98 in the state, the left-handed hitter has an efficient swing that stays on-plane, pairing with quick/strong hands that allow him to drive the ball to all fields. He will be a must-follow name throughout the rest of the spring.

Scouting Report


Uncommitted. 5-foot-9, 187-pound left handed hitting outfielder with an athletic, well-proportioned frame. Got the start in center field and hit third in the order. Balanced, athletic look in the box, minimal pre-pitch movement, looks to use the whole field. Pulled a sharp RBI single to right-field in his first at-bat. Sat back and shot the ball through the 6-hole in his second at-bat. Followed up in his third at-bat with a line-drive single to left-center field. Also, hopped on the mound in the seventh inning where he gave up one hit, one walk and struck out one. Fastball played with straight movement and sat 82-83 mph. Main off-speed was a 1/7 curveball at 70-71 mph.
