Last but not least, the loudest bat in the ‘23 class belongs to Kershaw. Alum of the Power Showcase HE Derby, the U Utah commit has ++ raw power and displays it almost immediately walking into the box in a BP setting. But he does it in games as well. The 2021 6A triple crown statistical leader as a sophomore, Kershaw has lift in a very powerful stroke to hit with a max EV of 102.6. He also shows big hand and bat speed metrics at 28.2 and 82, which are elite data points. Nicknamed the “Baby Bull” by yours truly, it’s caught on across the state, and he also reminds me of former big league hitter, Rusty Staub. For a big kid he can really whistle the bat and drive high and deep shots to the pull side. Look for Kershaw to contend for player of the year honors before his HS career cones to a close in 2023.

An XL frame with big features thruout. Country strong kid that has three years of HS baseball left. When looking at him, it’s hard to believe he’s this young. He’s a man child and his hitting ability and future power projs leaves you wanting to see him every 3-6 months to see his progression. Offensively the LHH 1B, features an even props square stance with a high back elbow and waggles his bat for rhythm, he then rocks into his back hip and picks his front foot up and sets it down into a soft short stride. At foot strike he positions the bat vertically into a dead hand position and needs to get better separation, yet fires the bat with a short compact powerful stroke that’s geared to pull. He finishes balanced and in the center of his body. His bat speed at 76 MPH is fast and quick and he finds the barrel, and the ball jumps with an EV high of 95. On the defensive side at 1B, he shows soft hands and fields out front, yet bends at the knees. He does have  to gather and takes an extra step to position himself to throw. With reps and instruction, he has time on his side to improve, yet the bat draws your attention and he should provide power and run production for his team. The bat is one to keep an eye on. 

The biggest jump of all the players from the previous event and Cole put on a show with the bat. This is the kind of bat that draws attention from events like this. Will be on the radar in short order. Hits from a semi open and wide stance and waggles and bounces the bat for rhythm and timing over this back shoulder. Brings the bat to a stop from a high elbow and hits from a semi dead hand position, but it doesn’t take away from his power or the ability to get the bat started and whistle it through the zone. Scoring in the top 5 of bat speed, and rotational acceleration, as well as the 3rd highest exit velo of 99.23, Kershaw also had the events best avg distance of 342 ft and blasted one ball 405 ft over the RCF monster net. It was one of 3-4 he hit over the net during BP, and only one ball has been hit in a game over the net, since the ballpark was built a handful of years ago. Was a good day for Mr. Kershaw!
