Top Infield Performances of the Fall

By Greg Williams

With the completion of the Fall College Prospect Program the outdoor portion of the Prep Baseball Report event schedule came to a close in September. With the Elite Prospect Showcase on November 7 set to kick off the indoor portion of the schedule we now look back on some of the top performances of the fall. Today we take a look at the top middle infield performances at a fall PBR event.

2016 2B/SS Lee Smith (Caravel Academy, DE)

Lee SmithLee Smith is a 5-foot-9, 160-pound switch-hitter that shined at the Eastern PA Fall Review. Smith was the hitting star of the event, going 5-6 with a double and routinely barreling the baseball from both sides of the plate. The Delaware prospect did not participated in the showcase portion of the event, but displayed solid barrel whip and arm strength during game action. He's not a burner on the basepaths, but showed good instincts stealing third base off a pitcher's sequence. He exhibited solid actions with good feet defensively, where he profiles best at second base. Smith verbally committed to the new program at Cabrini College shortly after the event.

2016 3B/RHP Bayley Jamanis (Lancaster Catholic, PA)

Bayley JamanisBayley Jamanis is a 6-foot, 180-pound right-handed hitter that took one of the top rounds of batting practice at the Unsigned Senior Showcase. The two-way prospect starts from a slightly open stance and strides to square. Jamanis displayed a solid feel for the barrel with some present power (89 mph bat exit velocity). He continues to show improved foot speed (7.25 60-yard dash) which has also resulted in improved footwork and range at third base. Jamanis showcased the ability to play through the baseball with good carry on accurate throws across the diamond (83 mph). He completed his day by sitting 82-84 on the mound.
