Jonathan Kirby is a 2006 3B/RHP from Noblesville, Indiana, with a medium, athletic build at 6'0", 160 pounds. He hits from a wide stance, and has an aggressive, attack approach to hitting. He showed excellent power during batting practice with a home run to left field. During the games he hit hard line drives to all fields, with great bat control and a level swing plain. He likes the ball down in the zone. He showed a lot of hustle and athleticism steeling bases, and had a 7.01 in the 60, and 4.59 home to first. He has quick feet with good arm actions, and above average range defensively. He also has a strong arm across the infield (75 mph) and made accurate throws. On the mound he throws a 73 mph fastball, and a 10-4 curveball at 64-65 mph with decent bite. John has good tools to work with, and he will only get better as he gets bigger and stronger. He is an excellent student.

Jonathan Kirby -- Kirby is a sophomore third baseman from Indiana with a slender but projectable 5-11 frame. Kirby is a good athlete who runs well now and could develop into an above average runner on the Major League scale. He showed quick feet and arm strength in the field. He hits from a spread stance with high hands and not much load or stride. Kirby has a good swing path but the wood is a bit heavy for him right now. Kirby also threw a bit from the mound and looked good for a youngster, hitting 81 mph with his fastball with some quality to his curveball and change up. He should definitely continue to pitch as well as play a position. Jonathan is an excellent student.
