9/2016 - Made USA 18U National Team.

8/11/16 - Had a hit in the first game that nearly killed the pitcher. He squared up a 91 mph fastball back up the middle that had an exit velocity of 99 mph. Lewis also showed his versatility by playing shortstop in the final game and making a nice play to his right. He backhanded a groundball, set his feet and made a strong throw to first for the out.

7/23/16 - The Americans added a run in the fifth and knotted things up at 4-4 in the sixth on a home run by OF/IF Royce Lewis (JSerra HS, CA). The UC Irvine recruit jumped on a 91 mph fastball and sent it to the back row of the bleachers in left field.

7/22/16 - Known for being a high-motor athlete, one who can play several positions well and make things happen with his instincts and speed. Lewis showed during BP that he has more firepower in his hands than originally thought. Using a balanced, simple approach, with hands set high, he generates easy bat speed. The effort in the swing was minimal – you’d see the ball jump off the barrel and think that was a well-struck ball, and the next thing you know it’s off the batter’s eye in center field. Call it sneaky power, which was in my notes. But putting a ball over four-bills with wood, I’d say that’s just power.

6/25/16 - Went 2-for-3 with a laser double off the top of the left field wall. It left the bat at 100.3 mph. Lewis, a UC Irvine recruit, has a loose swing at the plate with quick-twitch actions.
6/24/16 - Was 1-for-3 with a run scored and is very loose and twitchy at the plate. His one hit was a hard single back up the middle.
6/22/16 - Is a UC Irvine recruit and has twitchy actions. He starts with high hands at the plate and then drops them low. He has solid bat speed and doesn’t use his lower half much, but the ball jumps off his bat. His arm works and has looseness, grading as at least average.
3/26/15 - In two games, Lewis went a combined 3-for-7 with two runs scored. He also went 4-for-5 in stolen bases, though his caught stealing was a critical point. In the first game, with the Lions down 1-0 with one out in the sixth, Lewis got cut down trying to steal third, which ended a major threat by JSerra. Lewis, just a sophomore, is currently uncommitted, but every major program in the West figures to be on him. He has a wiry frame at 6-foot-1, 175 pounds with quick-twitch actions. He has a big leg kick at the plate, but he gets his foot down and his hands whip through the zone, generating good bat speed that produces hard line drives. He has good speed, getting down the line in 4.1 seconds and then in 4.4 with his turn on a double into the left-field corner.
