Scout Blog: South Forsyth vs West Forsyth

Justin Goetz

This in-county rivalry had eye opening talent on the mound, and at the plate for both teams. Although the War Eagles controlled this matchup from the start, there was plenty of upper & underclass talent in both dugouts. South Forsyth was led by an incredible CG, 2 hit, 10 K performance from Kennesaw State Commit Tyler Bayer, and the Wolverines were led by one of the most advanced FR bats you’ll find in ‘26 SS Colton Sweat. Each team has a good foundation to have success for the rest of the season, and a very bright outlook for the future.

Kennesaw State Commit. 6-foot-4, 180 pounds. With a prototype RHS frame that you see in the hardest throwing starters in baseball today (DeGrom, Verlander, Wheeler), he passes the eye test immediately. But when you get an extended look at the current delivery, stuff, and projection, you realize what a special arm this can be. Coming off a growth plate injury in 2022 that prevented him from playing summer/fall ball, Ty is attacking ‘23 with a whole bag of chips on his shoulder. It’s going very well, judging by his dominant CG, 2-hitter, 10 K performance last night! The pace builds gradually in his smooth delivery and he creates a slight crossfire angle that allows him to rotate even more violently through his lead leg block (which is very advanced for his age). His hand break is perfectly timed and is the key to him using his stride and front arm as levers, creating more tempo+momentum in the arm action, and feeling hip/shoulder separation. He understands how to create easy velocity, and throw strikes while doing it. This is an ode to his overall athleticism, natural feel for how his body moves, and mindset on the hill….
