Jake Cave is a 2011 OF/1B/LHP with a 6-1 180 lb. frame from Hampton, VA who attends Kecoughtan HS. Slender live bodied athlete, good strength potential. 6.83 runner, open stance, easy load and wrap, busy approach, very quick hands, some lift in swing, stays inside the ball, hard contact to LCF, would benefit from simplifying approach. Outstanding overall athlete, did not pitch but usually 88-91 mph off the mound. Good student, verbal commitment to Louisiana State. Selected to the Aflac All-American team.
