CA STATE GAMES: 

Positional Profile: 1B/RHP 
Body: 6-6, 235-pounds. Large and lengthy body with a sturdy frame.
Hit: LHH. Stands tall and slightly bent at the knees. Hands are neutral behind the ear. Smaller leg lift trigger. Starts movements early. The swing plane is flat, barrel stays in the zone a long time and stays extended through finish. Good plate coverage.
Power: 90 mph exit velocity from the tee. Above average bat speed (69mph) and rotational acceleration (17 g's) for his level per Blast Motion data. Plus pull side power. Over the wall power is coming soon.

Saints 2023 uncommitted first-basemen MJ Sweeney is hard to miss at 6-foot-7 235 pounds. The son of former big leaguer Mike Sweeney had a nice game Saturday collecting a line-drive single and towering double, both to the pull side. Hitting mechanics are relatively simple for a big guy with overall early timing mechanisms to enable him to keep his long and extended on-plane swing through the zone for an extended period of time. Athletically is raw and needs help with base running but shows some positive actions that are also being utilized on the football field as a left-tackle. Should find himself receiving big at-bats in a potent Saints line-up this coming season. Highly projectable frame, power capability and baseball bloodline project well for the young first-baseman.
