Blake Cope, Zionsville (IN), 2026
Positional Profile: 1B/OF Shows some of the best raw power in Indiana's '26 class - dangerous LHH that should receive plenty of high level interest
Body: 6-2, 195-pounds. Physical, athletic frame
Hit: LHH. Hits out of a tall, wide stance. Small, wrapping load triggers the gather, uses a short, controlled stride. Lower body mechanics show vast improvements from looks earlier in the year. Generates tremendous bat speed to allow for present pull-side strength. High level '26 prospect.
Power: 100 max exit velocity, averaged 90.3 mph. 368' max distance.
Arm: LH. INF-84 mph. Longer arm action from an over-the-top slot. Shows solid arm strength.
Defense: Athletic mover, hands are sure with a tendency to firm up at the catch. Quicker exchange.
ATH: 6.90 runner in the 60. 1.68 and 3.87 in the 10 and 30 yard splits.

+ '26 1B/OF Blake Cope (Zionsville) has been a helium '26 throughout the back-half of the 2023 season and he reaffirmed that status with one of, if not the best, showing of any player at the Hoosier Holiday. There’s no shortage of physicality with Cope, who holds plenty of inherent strength within a 6-foot-2, 195 pound frame. That strength was on full display during batting practice, where the left-handed slugger posted the top exit velocity of the day, reaching 100 mph. Displaying tremendous bat speed with bat strength to pair - there is natural lift to the pull-side as Cope delivers his barrel to the front of the hitting zone. Cope now holds the top exit velocity in Indiana's 2026 class, assuring the statement we made HERE, where we ranked Cope as the top uncommitted power hitter in the class. Along with a strong offensive showing, the Zionsville product posted the top infield arm of the event, reaching 84 mph across the diamond, while also posting a 6.90 60. Already a name-to-know prospect to our staff, Cope heads into the winter with plenty of positive momentum behind him.

Blake Cope, Zionsville (IN), 2026
Positional Profile: 1B/OF
Body: 6-2, 195-pounds. Uber-physical
Hit: LHH. Hits out of a wider, upright stance. Weight shifts into the back leg as he lifts the barrel to a position to launch, uses a leg lift stride. Rhythm is a bit choppy during the loading process. Creates tremendous bat speed for the age while turning an uphill barrel through the hitting zone. Obvious raw power with more to come. Top ranked 1B in the 2026 class.
Power: 92 max exit velocity, averaged 82.2 mph. 320' max distance.
Arm: LH. INF-81 mph. OF-78 mph. Moderate length to the arm swing, releases from an over-the-top slot.
Defense: (OF) - Athletic approach, shows sure hands and a natural exchange. (1B) - Quick, athletic feet when working off the bag. Shows sure hands and a natural exchange.
ATH: 6.84 runner in the 60.
