Hatanaka is an "04" OF/1B from Ontario. At 6'0/187 he is has a strong athletic body. He ran pretty good in CR, but threw better from the outfield the last time we saw him. His arm could have been sore or tired. He is fairly raw, but shows outstanding hitting potential. He might be better yet if he didn't point his back toe at the catcher. He has excellent power potential and he really smoked a few in CR. He got one nice hit off a good Jeremy Hellickson curve ball. There may be others with more polish to their game, but not the same potential as Hatanaka (that's with 5 A's) Bobby is an outstanding student with a 4.0 GPA and a 1350 SAT.

Hatanaka is an "04" OF/1B from Ontario who can hit. At 6'0/187 he is very strong. He ran an outstanding 6.94 in Wareham. His arm is borderline but it will play at Left field or 1B at the next level. He seems to know what he's doing on the baseball field. His bat is his #1 tool. He has a nice under control swing that creates very good bat speed. He has a nice approach at the plate and appears to look for pitches he can pull. The ball jumps off his bat. He projects to hit with wood bat power. Bobby is a top student with a 4.0 GPA and a 1350 SAT.
