Dan Cevette
President, New York

Our "Player Spotlights" will be reserved for any prospect across New York who's abilities on the field have made some noteworthy recent buzz. Possibly a recent event where a Top Performer Spotlight article is just not enough, or maybe a recent commitment to a major program. Whatever it is, I'll (Dan Cevette) be going in-depth on the player spotlighted below with personal insight and honest feedback. Let's get started.

Benjamin Beauchamp C / OF / McQuaid Jesuit, NY / 2019

CEVETTE'S QUICK HIT: It's been 9-months since we last saw Beauchamp, but the overwhelming fact remains; he's one of the most athletic prospects in the 2019 class. He's got everything you could ask for in a prospect. The arm is above average, the bat is above average, the athleticism is high end.. We like his game a lot and are thrilled he's back with us at the NYS Games. 

SCOUTING REPORT: High end athlete who can handle both the OF and behind the plate. The right-handed hitter ran a 6.89 60. Offensively- Slightly open stance; gains gound with stride as he works back to even. Quiet with hands early on, accelerates through the zone; aggressive lower half leads the way; elevated with a late one-handed finish. Gap-to-gap ability and handled upper level pitching very well over the 3 days. Defensively- Angled setup, quick with footwork but slight delay in getting throwing hand to the glove; arm action is short and over the top with his peak velocity at 76 MPH. Pop times ranged from 1.98 to 2.12. Also worked in as an outfielder, efficient first step footwork and closing speed. Offensive abilities may allow for him to work in at both positions at the next level.
