West Bend East has been off to a roaring start in 2024, currently at 10-3 and SS/RHP Mason Roell (2024) has been a big reason why. This week, he helped the Suns to a 3-1 record courtesy of some clutch hits and some quality pitching too, which earned him our ‘Player of the Week’ honors.

On Monday, Roell and West Bend East took on a quality Slinger opponent in which he tallied two hits and three RBIs, with the most important coming late in the game. Down to their final out the Suns were down by three, Roell came up with two runners on and blasted a game tying home run to send the game into extras. He also came in on relief in the seventh and eighth inning, holding Slinger scoreless which allowed West Bend East to walk it off in the eighth inning.

On Wednesday, Roell’s hot streak at the plate continued, when he exploded for six RBIs in their matchup with defending State Champions, Whitefish Bay. He blasted a grand slam for four of his six RBIs, and also collected a pair of singles to bring in his other two, to help the Suns take down conference foe Whitefish Bay.

In their final conference matchup of the week against Nicolet, Roell did all he could to help as he tallied four more RBIs on a double and a single, but it eventually fell short as they lost a heartbreaker. Then on Saturday, Roell wrapped up his productive week with a two hit, two RBI performance against non-conference opponent, Oshkosh West, both of his hits going for doubles.

To summarize, Roell put up some gaudy numbers this past week, going 9-for-14 at the plate with three doubles, and two home runs. He finished with 15 RBIs and helped West Bend East to a solid 3-1 week, taking down some competitive opponents in the process.

Scouting Report


Roell was one of the top producers for his high school team during the spring, earning him Third Team All-State honors and putting him on the radar as an uncommitted infielder, setting up for a quality summer. Roell stands at an athletic 6-foot-2, 175-pounds, and in our first look at the to-be senior since the winter, notable improvements were made. On the infield, from the shortstop position, Roell fired in throws with carry, maxing out at 85 mph. His twitch and quickness was translated on the offensive end as well, where the right-handed batter was able to backspin and drive the baseball with quick hands and ease. Roell’s pull-side usage was noteworthy, as he created leverage and elevated pitches during his swing, projecting as a quality hitter in the future. His work as a two-way prospect for West Bend East in the spring cannot be understated, as Roell continues to trend up in a loaded 2024 class in the Badger State.
