LATEST PG SHOWCASE REPORT
2020 PG Class of 2023 All American Games  
James Hays is a 2023 RHP/3B with a 6-1 200 lb. frame from Hawkinsville, GA who attends The Westfield Schools. Large frame with a physical build showing. Sturdy lower half with wide shoulders. Physically mature. Ran a 6.74 second sixty yard dash. Primary Right-Handed Pitcher, balanced throughout as he lifts over the belt and then drives down the mound. Very clean operation and proved he could repeat it. Stays direct to the dish while working working with smooth arm action. Fastball was up to 93 mph while jumping out of hand. Worked with a sweeping slider in the low-80's that got plenty of swings and misses. He also proved to have feel for a tumbling changeup. Pounded his spots and mixed pitches well. Already an elite type arm and projects more velocity down the road. Secondary Infielder, sitting back on the baseball as he gathers it in front of him. Hands work as he gathers it and then shuffles into transfers. Proved to be accurate from multiple angles. Left-Handed Hitter, spread out stance with high hands. Heel lift to stride as he looks to generate bat speed with upper half. Very strong and loud when he finds the barrel. Outstanding Student. Verbal to Georgia. Named to '23 All American Games Top Prospect List.
