Matt Hamlet is a 6' 152 pound 2007 middle infielder from Chesapeake, Virginia who attends Nansemond Suffolk Academy. He has a wiry athletic tone and a good projectable body. Matt continues to lower his running time and showed this by running a 7.11 60 and a 4.51 down the line. He had one of the best batting practice sessions showing good raw power and bat speed. He stays behind the ball well and drives the ball to all fields. He has a short swing and hits the ball deep in the zone. He made hard contact who will add more power as he gets stronger. Hamlet showed some very good hands and quick transfers in the field with good range to both sides. His feet work very well and his bat might move him to third base as he gets stronger. Matt is a very good prospect and must follow who was named to the Top Prospect game.

Matthew Hamlet is a 2007 middle infielder from Chesapeake, Virginia, who could develop into a solid Division I talent during the next three years as he strengthens his 5'11", 145 lb. frame and adds a bit of quickness. He really has a flair and feel for playing defense. Hamlet didn’t show his arm strength during workouts, but made several nice plays during games that showcased his true arm strength. His feet, balance, and hands are all very solid for his age, and he makes the tough plays in games. At the plate, Hamlet hits like he knows he’ll end up 6'1", 175 lbs. and wants to practice hitting like a bigger athlete now. He has a big load in his open to closed set up, with a long extended swing that generates bat speed and some pop, especially to right centerfield. It will take Hamlet a few years to realize his hitting potential, but it’s there. Overall, this is a fun player to watch and someone all the college coaches in the region should keep an eye on.
