Prep Baseball Louisiana: Scout Blog (Week 1)

Alex Armand and Tyler Leary
Prep Baseball Louisiana Staff

Opening Day of the 2024 high school baseball season officially kicked off on Monday February 19, 2024.  Our staff was eager and excited to get out to games this week and there were plenty of big-time matchups across the state in Week 1.  Today, we continue our coverage of the 2024 high school season with our Week 1 Scout Blog.  The Louisiana Scout Blog provides insider information and scouting notes from our scouting staff during the high school baseball season. This running blog will feature information on underclass prospects, unsigned seniors, draft prospects, and anything else that is notable.  We will provide a wide range of information, including player evaluations, velocities, pop times, home to first times, and more. 

Continue to check back here, as our Louisiana Scouting Staff will add scouting reports, upon the completion of each week.


+ 2027 LHP Lawton Littleton (Barbe HS)

6'0" 160 lbs. lean frame with a ton of projection.  The freshman southpaw and former Jr. Future Gamer proved in Week 1 why he's the state's top southpaw and #3 ranked overall player in the 2027 state rankings.  In our look on Saturday, he faced off against a tough Opelousas Catholic lineup with a ton of talent, and Littleton wasn't fazed.  He exuded a calm demeanor and pitched with a "low pulse" from his first pitch to his last.  The Barbe product worked his 80-83 mph FB to both sides of the plate and elevated when he had to.  He mixed in a bigger "1-7" shaped low-70's CB for strikes early and used a low-mid 70's SL with some sweep and a late-fading CH with two strikes.  Littleton earned the win and punched out 10 guys, which moves his season record to 2-0 with a total of 20 K's after Week 1.
