LATEST PG SHOWCASE REPORT
2019 14U National Showcase  
Walter Ford is a 2023 RHP/MIF with a 6-1 170 lb. frame from Pace, FL who attends Pace HS. Recorded a 7.18 second 60-yard dash time. Lanky frame with long limbs and lots of room to fill out. Primary righthanded pitcher with a physical presence and aggressive mechanics. Explosive side to side delivery with a high leg kick and a loose, live arm stroke. Releases with some effort at foot strike and accelerates well down the mound. Whippy arm action with a high three-quarters arm slot. Fastball topped out at 88 mph and showed very good life down and to the arm side. Tight breaking curveball with 11/5 shape and worked well to lock up hitters. Secondary middle infielder with a strong arm and very good carry out of the hand. Good first step and moves well with some flexibility and athleticism to lower half. Righthanded hitter with a high hand set, high back elbow, and some hip rotation. Front side leaks at times with an open stance and looks to pull. Has strength and bat speed with good carry to the pull side. Good student. Verbal commitment to Alabama. Named to the 14u National TP List. Selected for the 14u PG Select Festival.
