Anthony Williams is a 2008 right hand hitting catcher/outfielder from J. Serra HS, residing in Rancho Santa Margarita, CA. He has a 6'2" 185 lb. frame and a physical body, with big, long legs. He has a strong lower half and a rangy upper half. Williams has a chance to really come on in the next year. Offensively he showed good bat speed and the ball came off his bat well. His swing is sort of like a Mike Piazza type of swing if that helps paint a picture of his inside out stroke. His approach to the ball is quite good and he does a nice job of finishing his swing. Williams stays behind the ball and has good barrel lag. His approach allows him to let the ball travel and he shows power potential to all fields. He is quite an interesting hitting prospect and should be followed closely. Defensively he showed a long arm stroke in the outfield, with some arm strength. He is an accurate thrower and would do well in left field. Behind the plate he flashed the ability to be a good catch/throw backstop. He has coachable raw tools and with his offensive potential, it might be a wise idea to see how far Williams can develop as a catcher. His bat right now is the most playable tool and the tool that has the most future upside. D1 programs should put him on their follow lists and see him again this coming summer. He looks like a pretty good hitting prospect who may bring power to the catching position.

Anthony Williams is a 2008 C/3B/OF with a 6'2'', 185 lb. frame from Rancho Santa Margurita, CA, who attends Serra HS. Tall frame with long limbs. Defensively he has solid arm strength from behind the plate and from the OF. Williams has good skills behind the plate with nice footwork, and he works hard. At the plate he is a switch hitter who hits from a straight away stance with a line drive swing plane. Williams has solid bat speed and the ball jumps off his bat when centered. He gets a good weight shift with leverage in his swing at the point of contact. Williams throws the bat head well and creates back spin on his hits. He projects as a middle of the order run producer. He also filled in when his team was short a pitcher. He threw with a loose arm and his fastball topped out at 81 mph, while his change was 72 mph. He showed a good feel for his CH with good arm action, and he got life on his fastball. Williams is a hard worker who does very likeable things on the field.
