LATEST PG SHOWCASE REPORT
2017 14U National Showcase  
James McCracken is a 2021 LHP/1B/OF with a 6-1 150 lb. frame from Smyrna, TN who attends Middle Tennessee Christian HS. Large, athletic frame with square shoulders and long limbs, lean and projectable build with room to fill throughout moving forward. Ran a 7.74 60-yard dash. Primary lefthanded pitcher, shows balance to delivery and gets tall on backside while raising hands and front leg in unison above belt. Slight hesitation before drive to plate, full arm action through the back working to a higher three-quarters release point. Fastball topped out at 74 mph and showed running life when down in the zone. Throws curveball for strikes and had consistent feel for it, shows 1-7 shape with short depth at 62 mph. Flashed changeup up to 65 mph with fading life to arm side. Three pitches for strikes and mixed comfortably. Short steps to the ball in the outfield, fields the ball out front, works through the ball, full arm action prior to release, overall footwork will continue to develop. Gets square to the ball at first base, shows similar arm action and release on throws across diamond. Righthanded hitter, begins with a low back elbow in the box and uses a high leg lift trigger for timing at the plate. Long swing path through the zone, upper body dominant swing, keeps hands inside the ball and shows ability to work to the opposite field. Very good student.
