Heartland commit, has been on the rise all summer long thanks to one of the better left-handed bats in the class. Advanced bat-to-ball skills, handles velocity, stays short and inside the baseball, uses the whole field. Flat path, line-drive approach with sneaky pull-side leverage at times. Defensively, can play all over the infield but was at shortstop for much of the weekend. Steady, sure-handed defender, handled the routine plays and made a few not so routine, showing improved athleticism and body control. Arm plays accurate across the diamond.
Stats: 4-for-10, 2B, 3 BB, 2 RBI, 2 R

Uncommitted, 6-foot, 175-pound, athletically-built, infielder. One of the top uncommitted left-handed hitters in the state. Repeatable swing, consistently on time, stays short to the ball, uses all fields, routinely on time and on the barrel. Defensively, can stick up the middle, sound actions, steady hands and clean transfer. Follow 2021 left-handed hitter.

The left-handed-hitting middle infielder showed a solid all-around game with an average arm (85 mph across the diamond), a slightly below average run tool and a balanced, albeit somewhat stiff swing. There’s also some length to his swing. He attempts to use all fields. Most of his hard contact was to his pull-side with an exit velocity of 92 mph and a ProCase top five with 74 mph bat speed and a strong power kW mark of 4.72. After a laborious start and choppy stride throughout, he finished with a 7.01 sixty. Defensively, he can play tall at times on the dirt while showing fair actions and sure hands. Overall, the uncommitted Antonacci exited the ProCase with his prospect arrow pointing up.
