Ward is a 6-1, 185 lb senior catcher from Texas with a solid present build. He's an 8.04 runner with 70 mph arm strength and a best pop time during drills of 2.28. Ward had a very accurate arm during the games and probably throws out plenty of runners at the high school level. He's a hard working catcher on defense who is hustling all the time. At the plate, Ward has a slashing, downward swing with an early hand release. It isn't a particularly effective style of hitting, especially for a player like Ward who has some natural strength and longer levers. He'd benefit from a different approach at the plate. Overall, Ward is a good, hard nosed player who shows good makeup and leadership. He's also a good student.

Shawn Ward is a 6'1" right handed hitting catcher in the 2006 class from Leander, Texas. He has a very projectable body and nice athletic skills on defense. Ward’s arm works well and he showed some good arm strength. At the plate, Ward showed bat head skills and made consistent contact. He has a nice inside out contact swing that is more conducive to hitting for average than hitting with power at this time. He is a player to watch. It should be noted that Ward had a case of Mononucleosis at the time of the showcase. We would like to see him completely healthy as he has some definite ability.
