Freddie Freeman is a 2007 left hand hitting 1st baseman/outfielder from El Modena HS, residing in Villa Park, CA. Freeman has a long, strong, lean build on a well-proportioned 6'4" 200 lb. frame that will continue to fill out. He has long arms and legs that will continue to get stronger as he physically matures. Freeman is one of the top pure hitters in the '07 high school class and was ranked #7 among PG National Top 100 position players. When he is swinging the bat well, he is a fun to watch hit as anyone in this class. Freeman has plus plus hands for hitting. The one thing that he loves to do on the field is to get in that batters box and hit. He gets behind the ball at contact and squares up consistently on time, further adding power to the what his produced by his bat speed and strength. Freeman routinely makes plus barrel contact and produces easy easy power. The ball makes a different sound off his bat than with most players. He has plus power to all fields and at times his power is just explosive. Freeman is not only a power hitter, but a high average hitter as well. He has a short stroke and is much stronger than he looks. He is the type of hitter that can miss the barrel and is still plenty strong enough to not just get the ball over or through the infield, but he can still get into the gaps when he doesn't square up the barrel. To watch him on one of his better days makes a scout imagine 40 dingers in the Big Leagues. One of Freeman's attributes that serves him so well as a hitter is that he has a short memory. When he makes an out or doesn't get a pitch as well as he felt he could, he simply looks forward to his next at-bat. If he ran better Freeman would project well as a right fielder. He has a plus arm and can throw accurately. However, he is a below average runner and likely will stay at first base in pro ball. His hands and footwork are good there and he plays the position well. Freeman ran a 7.80 60 yard time. He is an upper round professional prospect and has verbally committed to Cal State Fullerton. With an average (for him) spring he will go well in the draft and with a big spring, he is a first round candidate.
