Donte Bean is a 2006 outfielder from Rowlett, TX with a very athletic build that shows core strength at 5-10, 175 lbs. Bean's tool is his speed and he can fly. He ran a 6.32 in the 60 and shows excellent range in the outfield. We understand that Bean does run track, too, and we can understand why. His range is a big defensive plus and he has quick release in the outfield with good accuracy on his throws. Offensively, Bean has a simple, balanced stance with a short swing that he chokes up some on. He has little lower half involvement in his swing, although he has the strength to create bat speed and drive the ball hard should he develop that hitting style. It looks like a coach at a young age saw his speed and worked with him on a simple contact swing, but we feel that Bean has advanced beyond that. He is a potential high ceiling and well rounded offensive player in the Marquis Grissom mold if he can make some adjustments with the bat to use his raw physical tools. Keep a very close eye on him for future adjustments, as Bean is a highest level athlete.

Donte Bean is a 2006 outfielder from Garland, Texas. Bean was by far the fastest runner in Waco, running back to back 6.44 and 6.43 times on the adjacent Baylor soccer field. He’s also an accomplished track star, which isn’t a surprise. Bean has good strength throughout his 5'10" frame, and generates good bat speed with wood. He hits out of a wide stance and a crouch, which doesn’t let him get out of the box quickly, but showed the ability to drive the ball during games. Bean ran around 4.2 a couple of times on ground balls, but really was able to show his speed ranging after fly balls in centerfield. He’ll be an interesting athlete to watch develop as he gets more baseball repetitions.

Bean is just a 2006 outfielder with some of the best athleticism we saw at the South Underclassman showcase. He had some of the top raw ability in the event and showed it with his bat and especially with his running ability. He was timed in the 60 at 6.66 and can just fly in the outfield tracking down balls. He appears to take good routes and knows how to track balls properly getting a good jump and he showed it in one particular instant where he had to go back to his right and make a difficult play look easy. With the bat, Bean showed good bat-speed accelerating his bat-head through the zone and pulled a few balls deep to left in batting practice. His last 2 swings he made an adjustment and drove those two deep to center. He is a top athlete, has outstanding abilities and lots of time to further develop.
