Zachary Hare 3B / RHP / Riverside, PA / 2025

Legit 2-way player at the next level. Strong muscular build. Top of the leaderboard in everything. Power arm and power bat!

Joe Safar OF / 1B / North Catholic, PA / 2025

Physcially impossing athlete. Made the building shake during BP. Over 100mph EV on every swing. Ready for the next level. 

Aedan Fowler LHP / OF / Seneca Valley, PA / 2025

Continues to mature and improve. Made gains in every metric. Exciting follow this spring with the bat and as a LHP.

Kyaire Grandy OF / Pittsburgh Allderdice, PA / 2027

Impressive mature freshman. Steady heads and compact swing. Quick bat turn; already up to 96mph EV.

Michael Cejrowski Jr RHP / 3B / Seton La Salle , PA / 2026

The sophomore opened some eyes. Projectable frame with plenty of room to fill.  Firm, downhill FB and effective off-speed. Good RHP to add to your 2026 board. 

Boden Lenyk SS / 3B / Butler, PA / 2026

This was our second time seeing him this winter and he backed everything up. Boden has all the tools to play INF at the next level. Good footwork, smooth glovework and a strong arm (IF-velo: 85mph). He also put on a barrel show with the bat reaching an EV of 96mph.

Anthony Grippo C / RHP / Greensburg Central Catholic , PA / 2026

In a state loaded with good catchers, he is right near the top.  Has all the tools and build to play at the next level. Big work ethic and high enery player.  

Nolan Stefaniak RHP / 1B / Butler, PA / 2026

Made a big jump from a year ago and the celling is still high. We loved his pace and quick loose arm action. Really competive bullpen; pounded the lower half of the zone with his FB and was very effective with his breaking ball.

Caden Sivrich RHP / OF / Norwin, PA / 2026

Really impressive performace on the mound. Full repertoire of pitches on display.  Starting pitcher potential at the next level. Will only get better.

Tyler Maddix OF / LHP / Bishop Canevin, PA / 2025

Really talented athlete. All the tools and makeup to play at a high level. Potential 2-way prospect. Big time juice with the bat and the arm continues to get stronger. 

Graham Keen 3B / OF / Mt Lebanon, PA / 2027

The buzz was all over the room when his name appeared on the roster. Everyone stopped to watch his workout and he was unfazed. Physically gifted and ultra talented. Fluid and athletic actions. Threw an effortless 98mph from the OF. Long limbs; tremendous bat control with smooth barrel path (EV-101mph). Only a freshman, exciting follow with big upside.

Jon Saunders RHP / OF / Gateway, PA / 2027

Burst onto the stage in a big way. The freshman put up legit numbers and has plenty of upside. 98mph EV and a 85mph FB is a good way to start your high school career. Bright future ahead. 

Jackson Maddix LHP / 1B / Bishop Canevin, PA / 2027

Already on the radar, gave scouts a reminder of his next level 2-way potential. Had a 90mph OF velocity and easy barrel turn with the bat. The LHP also jumped on the hill and showed off his nasty 3-pitch mix. FB up 84mph with more in the tank.

Hunter Krahe RHP / 3B / Mercyhurst Prep, PA / 2026

Not sure anyone enjoys playing the game more. High energy and strong work ethic. Continues to improve and has legit 2-way potential at the next level. High leg kick, powerful extension through contact (EV-97mph). Will get outs on the mound. Uses different slots to keep hitters off balanced. FB up to 84mph with ASR.

Andrew Cross SS / 2B / Moon Area, PA / 2026

Nobody improved his stock more this week. Opened some eyes during BP with how the ball exploded off his bat (EV-97mph). Can really flash the leather as well. Showed good range and a strong arm from deep in the hole.  

Jaidyn Rivera OF / RHP / The Haverford School, PA / 2026

The number 1 OF in the 2026 class did not disappoint. He keeps improving and is poised for a big sophomore season. 

Keller Bradley RHP / OF / Pennsbury, PA / 2026

Dominating performance on the mound. He is primed for the big stage and the celling is still high. Good command of 3-pitch mix. Ran FB up to 91mph. Going to be a tough arm to face this spring for opposing hitters.

Ryan Petruska LHP / OF / Nazareth Area, PA / 2026

Should have plenty of college coaches calling. Everyone is looking to add LHP's to their staff and Ryan is as good as it gets. Projectable frame, already runs FB up to 88mph. Tight spin SL and a hard sinking CH to complement.



Chase Ecker OF / OF / Malvern Prep, PA / 2025

Has all the tools and makeup of a next level CF. Blazing speed (60 time-6.56) and strong arm (OF velo-83mph). Showed juice in the bat (EV- 95mph) to be a top of the order type of hitter. 



Matthew Sharkey C / OF / Central Bucks East, PA / 2025

Impressive day. Strong athletic backstop (60 time-6.93). Showed power potential with EV up to 98mph. Will throw you out on the bases with a POP time of 2.03(C Velo- 78mph).
