Greg Baker is a 2007 C/OF/P with a 5'11'', 175 lb. frame from Hickory NC, who attends Hickory HS. He has a small frame and good present strength. Baker showed impressive arm strength both as a catcher and in the outfield. In fact, Baker was very impressive defensively at both positions. Although he was only a 7.53 runner in the 60, Baker showed college level range in the outfield and made several nice running catches. He's athletic behind the plate with quick actions both throwing and blocking. His best pop time was a quick 1.94, which could improve if he shortens his release. Offensively, Baker is a high effort hitter who attacks the ball aggressively. He maintains his balance well for his approach and gets good extension through the ball. The ball comes off his bat with authority and he shows gap to gap power. Baker will occasionally pull off the ball early and reach for the ball due to his aggressiveness. Overall, Baker has plenty of tools that play at the college level and impressive versatility. He is also an excellent student.
