LATEST PG SHOWCASE REPORT
2018 14u Main Event Showcase  
Colten Payton is a 2023 SS/RHP/C with a 5-6 135 lb. frame from Colorado Springs, CO who attends Pine Creek. Small and stocky frame with plenty of time to continue to fill out physically. Ran a 9.82 second 60 yard dash. Primary shortstop, moves to the baseball with young footwork, some athletic actions that will continue to improve with maturity, works through the baseball with developing arm strength and a long arm action, topped out at 65 mph across the diamond. Secondary righthanded pitcher, worked exclusively from the stretch, simple leg raise staying balanced at gather, quick arm circle releasing from a compact 3/4 arm slot, fastball topped out at 66 mph and flashed life to armside. Also took reps at catcher, sets up in a lower crouched position, short arm action into a tight release, gains ground into his throws, 2.35 second best pop time. Righthanded hitter, sets up with an even stance and a high hand set, utilizes a leg lift trigger into contact, takes a downhill swing plane to the baseball, young swing with some barrel feel when working on a linear path, will improve with proper adjustments to timing and swing plane.
