Eric Harpring is a 6-0, 165 switch hitting outfielder from Indiana. He ran the 60 in 7.25 and threw 75 mph during outfield drills. Harpring was one of the defensive stars of the showcase. He plays shallow and shows very good instincts and gets good jumps on balls. While he didn't have the strongest arm at the event, Harpring has a very quick release and very accurate arm. He threw 3 runners out in one game, then threw another out the next game. At the plate, Harpring hits out of a wide stance with a quick, line drive swing from both sides of the plate. He showed the ability to make solid contact and move the ball around the field. More strength will mean more power and more ability to get the ball up the gaps. He uses his speed well on the bases. Harpring profiles as a leadoff/top of the order type of hitter. He's a good all around ball player who likes to play and has fun. He's also an outstanding student.

Harpring is a switch hitting 6-0 outfielder from Indiana. He ran the 60 in 7.35 and threw 77 mph from the outfield while showing good quickness and balance moving through the ball. Harpring looked to be a better hitter from the left side of the plate to us. He had a more balanced approach and better bat speed and extension through the ball than from the right side and made more consistent solid contact. Better use of his lower half will show immediate improvement in his hitting ability. Harpring has a good frame and should keep adding strength with hard work.

Harpring is a 6-0, 165 lb switch hitting outfielder from Indiana. He's a rare left handed thrower who also switch hits. From the left side of the plate Harpring has better timing and better bat speed than he does right handed. He has a good line drive swing plane from the left side and makes good consistent contact to all fields. Harpring will slap at the ball left handed while getting out of the box early and try to use his speed to reach base. His overall offensive profile is as a top of the order type of hitter who is going to do everything he can to get on base. Harpring is a good runner at 7.26 in the 60 and showed good outfield fundamentals and throwing mechanics. He's also an excellent student with top level grades and test scores.
