Gage Ecklund is a 2009 C from Marian Central Catholic HS in Richmond, IL, with a 5'8'', 180 lb. frame. He was one of the youngest players at the showcase. Ecklund has a strong lower half for his age and a less developed upper half. He threw 67 mph during drills from behind the plate with a best pop time of 2.40. His throws were accurate but his release was multi-part and deliberate. More experience will speed things up for Ecklund. Offensively, Ecklund sets up with a very wide base and has good blance through contact. He has an aggressive upper cut swing and generates very good bat speed for his age. He lofted a couple very well with wood in batting practice and you don't see that from a 14 year old very often. It looked like he had a feel for the strike zone and knew what pitches he could drive. He has nice hitting skills with strength and a mature approach and looks like a dangerous hitter. He'll hit more than his share of balls out of the park over the next few years.

Ecklund is a 5-8, 165 lb freshman catcher who lives in Illinois but attends school in south Florida. He ran the 60 in 7.55 and threw 66 mph during catching drills with a best pop time of 2.40. Ecklund is a good looking young hitter with some strength for his age. He hits from a wide stance with a limited trigger and good upper body rotation. Ecklund stays behind the ball well and go opposite field with a pitch with some authority. He has some bat quickness that will just keep improving with physical maturity. He hits with confidence and looks comfortable in the batter's box. Eckland also took a turn on the mound and threw 72 mph with a loose arm and a drop and drive throwing style.
