PG Grade: 8
Ben King is a 2019 RHP/1B with a 6-3 210 lb. frame from Calhoun, GA who attends Calhoun High School. Large build and frame, compact lower half, and good present strength throughout frame. Posted a 7.68 time in the 60 yard dash. Primary right handed pitcher, started on the first base side of the rubber, landed closed down the mound, compact lower half, and threw from a three quarter arm slot. Tight leg lift into the body with slight effort at release. Fastball worked 79-82 mph with short arm side life and sink when kept low. Slider showed 10/4 shape with good depth and developing feel to spin. Also showed a curveball with 11/5 shape. Effectively pitched to contact and varied looks to the plate. Secondary first basemen, stayed low through the ball, used a lower three quarter slot, and showed arm strength up to 84 mph across the diamond. At the plate, started with a crouched stance, spread base, high back elbow, and a simple shift to contact. Line drive swing plane with good extension through contact. Repeated swing well with a gap-to-gap approach. Will continue to improve with age. Exceptional student.
