Cole Vann (2015 - Colquitt, GA) also proved to have pop in his bat to go along with solid hitting tools and wrist cock.  Vann is a gap to gap hitter with line drive power that keeps a solid base throughout the swing.

Forbes Elam (2015 - Irmo, SC) hit the ball with power to his pull side and showed good use of his hands in his swing.  With a good frame and hitting tools, Elam has potential to develop into a quality hitter at the next level.

The show put on by Michael Curry (2015 - Gainesville, GA) proved that his spot in the PG Class of 2015 National Rankings is well deserved.  The Georgia commit is currently ranked in the top 100 overall draft prospects for his class, as well as the #1 catcher in the state.  In his BP session, Curry showed plus, plus bat speed while making it look easy.  He has great hands, and made very hard contact while utilizing his lower half.  His strength and hitting tools project for Curry to hit for power and be a middle of the order run producer at the next level.  Whether that next level will be college or pro ball is yet to be determined.

Dalton Rone (2017 - Theodore, AL) is an interesting young prospect with solid hitting tools.  He is a lead-off type hitter with a short and quick swing that produces line drives to all fields.  Listed at 5'7" and 135 pounds, Rone has room to grow but shows power potential with good lift and feel for his swing.

Tucker Clark (2015 - Madison, AL) favored the pull side during his batting practice session, using good hands and a strong base.  He keeps a short swing while doing a good job of firing his back side through the baseball and creating bat speed.
Green Team Batting Practice Highlights >>
