LATEST PG SHOWCASE REPORT
2020 National Underclass Showcase-Main Event  
Walter Ford is a 2023 3B/RHP with a 6-3 195 lb. frame from Hoover, AL who attends Hoover. He showed good speed with a 6.89 second sixty. A primary third baseman with a plus frame and more room to continue to fill out. On the infield he works quickly to the baseball with eh glove playing out front, he showed plenty of arm with easy carry at 91 mph and accurate when he gets on top of the ball. On the mound he starts the delivery with a deliberate side step up to a controlled high leg lift, he stays taller on the back side before coming down the mound, the arm works free through the back up to a three-quarters slot with consistent arm speed on all of his offerings, the fastball really jumps out of the hand at 88-92 mph while topping out at 93 mph with some heavy traits, the curveball has tight spin with good 11-5 shape and is in the zone consistently enough to use in any count, he looks to attack hitter early and put them away with his stuff. Right-handed hitter, starts with an even base and utilizes a small leg lift trigger, the barrel works quick through the zone with a high finish as he showed good bat speed and hand strength looking to get the head out front and pull. Good student.Named to the 2020 National Underclass Main Event Top Prospect List. Verbal commitment to Alabama.
