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 year, 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

Big time hitter that shows serious juice at the plate. Advanced makeup as a hitter and is more than just a guy with pop. Has a patient approach at the plate from a slightly open stance but does a good job of staying "synched up" and using his powerful lower half. Creates some tilt in his swing and can go deep to all parts of the field. Could eventually move across the diamond to 1B.
