LATEST PG SHOWCASE REPORT
2004 National Showcase  
Justin Upton is one of the top tools guys ever. He has high hips, an extremely MLB type 6'2/187 body. He's a shortstop just like his older brother BJ who was the 2nd pick of the 2001 draft and already in the Big Leagues. While Justin shows high SS grades his tools might be graded higher than anyone in history as a center fielder. Upton’s 6.23 speed in the 60 is unsurpassed in Perfect Game Showcase history and the ball comes off his bat with a different sound than other hitters this age. Upton looked smooth and polished at shortstop and didn’t play any centerfield, as has been talked about at times. He scores big in all departments. He even threw another wrinkle into his tools package, touching 94 mph in a quick inning on the mound. He exceeded all expectations as the #1 ranked player for 2005. Justin was selected to the AFLAC All American Team and received the Jackie Robinson award as the top player in High School. baseball.
