Mark Ginther is a 2008 SS/P with a 6'2'', 175 lb. frame from Tulsa, OK who attends Jenks HS. He has a lean, athletic build and lots of projection. Ginther looked excellent during infield drills and batting practice. Ginther is a top level QB on the Oklahoma 6A football champions as well as a top baseball prospect. Defensively, Ginther showed fluid infield actions during drills with very good body control and a quick strong arm. His range and arm strength profile best to third base in the future. At the plate, Ginther took a very good BP and showed a simple, quick approach with plus hand strength and crushed line drives to all fields During the games he didn't get into a good hitting groove, but it's all there. We know from seeing him in the past that he's one of the top young hitters around. Ginther also pitched and was 87-88 mph on his fast ball from an extended overhand release point. Last year it was Kozma from Oklahoma who went first round, is Ginther next? He is a good student and has a verbal commitment to Oklahoma State.
