Our uncommitted senior spotlights continue and today we’ll shine some light on left-handed hitting C/3B Dalton Short, a strong 6-foot-1, 215-pound prospect ranked No. 72 overall in the state’s 2021 class.

We just saw Short at our PBR SLABA Showcase Day in September, where he took a quality round of batting practice, flashing gap-to-gap pop and a natural feel to lift the baseball through contact.
