Timothy Hansen is a 2006 2B/3B from Zion, Illinois, with a short, athletic build at 5'9", 145 pounds. He has a strong lower half, and has room to gain upper body strength as he continues to mature. He is a switch hitter with a quick bat, and good power to the pull side from the right side of the plate. He is quick to the ball with a short, compact stroke. From the left side he has a longer swing plain, and slows his hands slightly, but it is definitely a developing skill. He works hard on defense and has soft hands and a good glove. He showed good throwing accuracy from a balanced position, as well as on the move. He has a strong arm, good range, and showed great hustle during the entire event. He showed good foot speed with a 7.25 in the 60, and 4.46 home to first. Tim has a good idea of how this game should be played and will play at the next level.
PG Grade 6.5

Hansen is a very young player that has a good upside. He has nice baseball actions and when he is not catching he plays shortstop. He is from Illinois and just entering his High School freshman baseball season this spring. Hansen is a student of the game and has the ability to apply that knowledge with some good baseball ability. He has a body that is strong and very proportionate for his age. He showed excellent body coordination for a freshman. All his actions are better than we normally see in a player his age. With the bat, he showed a nice smooth swing with natural fluid body motion. He showed a tendency to swing the head of the barrel downward through the strike zone and sometimes struggled to make the adjustment on the belt high fastball. The low ball was not a problem as he drove them hard all over left field. Also, he didn't always wait for the ball and sometimes he would try to make the adjustment by slowing his bat down. We think that if he waited on the ball more he would have the swing he wanted. He was eager to hit and a few times he ended up out front too early. It is obvious that if he stays patient the swing is there and he will learn to drive the entire field better. Defensively he showed some adjustments that we rarely see a player make. His catch and throw skills are advanced. He began his pop time workout with his legs tense, jumping up early and stabbing at the ball. On his own, he finished the last series of pop times with his body much more relaxed. The result was a large improvement in his actions, fluidity, and most importantly results. His best pop time was 2.25 and he showed 66 mph velocity on our radar guns. Hansen is a good player now. He’s the type that will be the captain on his team by the time he is a senior. As a freshman he has already scored an 1140 on the PSAT. We will enjoy following his progress for the next three years. He has a bright future!
