LATEST PG SHOWCASE REPORT
2013 Spring Top Prospect Showcase  
Ben Jacobson is a 2013 RHP/IF with a 6-0 188 lb. frame from Ottosen, IA who attends Humboldt HS. Solid athletic build with broad shoulders. Has a side step delivery with a little bounce on the back leg. Long loose arm action out of a high ¾ arm slot and gets downhill out of the wind up. Pounds the strike zone. Ran the FB up to 85 and showed good feel for a big breaking CB at 72 mph. 76 mph CH had big drop at times. Tempo needs work out of the stretch as he tends to rush. At the plate he has a wide set up and showed an aggressive swing, has present bat speed, ball jumps off barrel. Extension out front could be better. Excellent student.
