LATEST PG SHOWCASE REPORT
2016 National Showcase  
Jacob Amaya is a 2017 SS with a 6-0 180 lb. frame from El Monte, CA who attends South Hills HS. Medium athletic build, has some strength and is pretty mature physically. 7.01 runner, very polished defensively, very quick hands with a very quick transfer, gets rid of the ball right now, advanced footwork coming through the ball, can throw from multiple slots with arm strength and accuracy, has the tools to play shortstop but would be fun to watch turning double plays at second base. Right handed hitter, busy hand load, open stance, short swing with an inside hand path, simple shift into contact, line drive approach and hits the ball out front, can use more lower half to generate more raw bat speed. Mature player with skills. Verbal commitment to Cal State Fullerton.
