By Andy Sroka
Illinois and Wisconsin Assistant Director

On Sunday, Feb. 7, Prep Baseball Report will host the 19th edition of its prestigious, flagship event: the Super 60 Pro Showcase. Since the event’s inception in 2003, more than 300 players have been selected in the MLB Draft, including 22 first-round picks and 25 second-rounders.

We started our our march toward the Super 60 earlier this month, by highlighting the prospects set to join us, shining a light on their impressive player profiles that they've groomed through their high school years and beyond.

Scouting Report


New England Procase

6-foot, 195-pound,strong, solid athletic frame. Strength throughout, well proportioned. A left-handed hitting catcher, once again showed very well from both sides of the field. Defensively, can really catch, block and throw. The setup is wide, super athletic behind the plate. The arm action is short and clean, throwing from his ear, with easy rhythm and tempo to it. The arm was clocked at 81 mph, with a pop time of 1.90-2.0, all throws were downhill and on the bag. At the plate, even feet, loose and relaxed hands, slight pre-pitch movement. The lower half is under control. The swing path is level to up, barrel has life and whip out front. The approach is gap to gap, creating enough loft to beat the pull side outfielders. Potential to be a draft pick next year. 

Tee Exit Velocity: 88 mph

Arm Velocity: 81 mph

Sixty-Yard: 7.35


6-foot 185-pound left-handed hitting catcher. Ran a 7.26 sixty at the event. The skill set behind the dish is advanced, threw 81 mph down to second base. The pop time is 2.01. The transfer is clean, the feet work and its easy for him. The arm path is ideal and he gets rid of it. The bat has a tee exit velocity of 87 mph. The setup is even in base and the bottom half is under control throughout the swing. The hands work freely and the path is slightly uphill.. The bat gets through the ball after contact, I believe he will really hit. Should be a draft in a couple of years.

Tee Exit Velocity- 87 mph
Catching Velocity- 81 mph
Pop Time- 2.01
