Travis Olson is a 2008 C/3B with a 5'11'', 180 lb. frame from Hiawatha, Iowa, who attends Kennedy High School. Olson has present strength in his body. Defensively he showed an accurate arm throwing to second base producing pop times of 2.29. Olson could cut down his pop times by shortening up his arm action on his throws. He handled the different pitchers well. At the plate he is a right handed hitter who hits from an upright and open stance with a simple and balanced approach. Olson likes the ball on the inner half and he likes to turn on the ball hitting to his pull side. Olson is a player that plays hard and will do the little things to help a team win. He is a good student as well.

Travis Olson is a 2008 C/3B that attends Cedar Rapids Kennedy HS and resides in Hiawatha, IA with a 5'10", 160 lb. frame. Travis has a lean athletic build and showed nice baseball instincts at the showcase. At the plate Travis hits from a tall stance with good leverage in his swing. He has some strength in his swing and shows his best contact to the middle of the field. Travis will need to work waiting back on the ball more and keeping his front shoulder on the ball longer. Behind the plate Travis is a solid receiver with good command of the game. His arm slot is a little low and he needs to work on his transfer and release. Travis is a solid student that should attract the attention of some smaller colleges.

Travis Olson is a 2008 C/3B with a 5'10'', 165 lb. frame from Hiawatha IA, who attends Kennedy HS. He has a young body and face and should continue to get stronger as he gets older. Olson is a high energy, hustling catcher. He threw 70 mph in drills with a best pop time of 2.14. Olson's arm strength and throw times have improved tremendously over the past year. Offensively, Olson hits from a balanced stance with very low hands and a prounoucned hand hitch which leaves him under the ball much of the time. When Olson stayed on top of the ball he showed good hand strength and the ball jumped off his bat well. Once Olson got on base, he showed very good baserunning instincts. Olson should continue to improve given his approach to the game. He is also a very good student.

Travis Olson is a 2008 C/3B with a 5'10'', 160 lb. frame from Hiawatha IA, who attends Cedar Rapids Kennedy HS. He has a young body with a smaller frame. Olson threw 68 mph during drills with best pop time of 2.27. He had a best game pop of 2.44. Olson has a balanced, no stride approach at the plate with a hand hitch trigger to get the bat going. He showed the ability to make consistent contact against all types of pitching and spray line drives to all fields. Olson isn't strong enough right now to drive the ball with much authority but does a nice job getting the bat head out. He hits best when he hits inside the ball and doesn't roll over out front. Olson is a smart player and a good hustler. He is also a very good student.

Travis Olson is a 2008 catcher/right handed pitcher from Hiawatha, Iowa, with a 5'9", 150 lb. frame. Olson showed solid footwork behind the plate on his throws to second base, and blocking balls. He also showed nice hands receiving the ball. He hits with a no stride approach and doesn't get much out of his lower half. He was aggressive at times, and showed some power potential that could improve with better lower half involvement and extension. He throws from a low 3/4 arm slot with slinging action. Olson gets tailing life on his fastball that topped out at 68 mph. He has a balanced delivery, and shows good rhythm on the mound. He keeps the ball down, and gets many ground balls.
