2024 Super 60: Data Dive, Position Players

By Andy Sroka
Managing Editor, Scouting

On Feb. 4, Prep Baseball Report hosted its 22nd annual Super 60 Pro Showcase at The MAX, in McCook, Ill., on the outskirts of Chicago. Since the event’s inception in 2003, more than 400 players have been selected in the MLB Draft, including nearly 30 first-round picks.

This year’s event made for another exciting first stop on the road to the 2024 MLB Draft, featuring some break-out performances that surely expanded the follow lists belonging to the professional scouts in attendance, as they outline their next six months. The 2023 event featured a handful of all-time performances, and yet, this year’s event managed to rival those same record-breaking showings.

The 2024 Super 60 saw a fastball tie the firmest max velo of all-time – and another that came close – the fastest 60-yard dash in three years, two of the hardest throws by a backstop to second base ever, as well as the highest average exit velocity of all-time.

Today, our next step in the Super 60’s post-event breakdown will come in the form of a statistical analysis. We’re taking a look at all of the measured data collected at the Super 60, assessing the traditional stats and the leaders among them, beginning with the pitchers. We’ll have additional analysis and scouting reports published in the coming days and weeks, so keep an eye out for that content on the site, as well as the state’s individual landing pages.

Here’s a look at the position player leaderboards from the 2024 Super 60.



Rank Name State School Class Pos 60-yard
1 Tyson Lewis NE Millard West 2024 SS 6.40
2 Sam Miller NY Fairport 2024 OF 6.51
3 Tytus Cissell MO Francis Howell 2024 SS 6.53
4 Drew Dickerson MO Lees Summit West 2024 SS 6.56
5 Perry Hargett NC Metrolina Christian 2024 SS 6.57
^ Griffin Burkholder VA Freedom 2024 OF 6.57
6 Jace Souza HI Kamehameha Schools Kapalama Campus 2024 OF 6.63
^ Brendan Tunink IL Newman Central Catholic 2024 OF 6.63
7 Eli Lovich KS Blue Valley West 2024 OF 6.71
8 Eddie Rynders WI Wisconsin Lutheran 2024 SS 6.73
9 Cooper Malamazian IL Nazareth Academy 2024 SS 6.75
10 Addison Klepsch CA Del Norte 2024 SS 6.78

Traditionally, the 60-yard dash has been the in-event standard to help measure a player's speed tool. We implemented three timing gates at the 10- and 30-yard splits, to capture athletes’ quickness, explosiveness and reaction time.

Get used to seeing SS Tyson Lewis’ (Millard West HS, NE; Arkansas commit) name inside this story, as he recorded one of the Super 60’s fastest-ever 60-yard dash times, a 6.40. Lewis had a huge day statistically, and otherwise. And interestingly enough, he recorded some of the event’s hardest contact since we’ve been using TrackMan technology (2020) at the Super 60, too. Pretty elite company to keep as an elite runner with high-end exit velocity marks – and he’s a left-handed hitter on top of it all.

New York’s OF Sam Miller (Fairport HS; Binghamton) is another premium athlete who showed himself near the top of several leaderboards, including this one. The Upstate New Yorker is athletic and toolsy, worthy of monitoring this spring.
