LATEST PG SHOWCASE REPORT
2015 National Showcase  
Zachary Hess is a 2016 RHP/1B with a 6-6 200 lb. frame from Forest, VA who attends Liberty Christian Academy. Very long and tall build, broad shoulders, good strength for his size, very projectable physically. Straight leg delivery, high energy throughout, big head whack on release, big cross body angle on release. Fastball topped out at 93 mph with big angle to the plate, has been up to 96 mph since, gets good cutting action at times. Slurve type breaking ball with huge sharp tilting action at times, wavers between curveball and slider. Very uncomfortable at-bat due to delivery and raw stuff, especially for a right handed hitter. Straight reliever profile at present but the stuff can be special. Has improved 6-8 mph over the last year and still has projection. Good student, verbal commitment to Virginia Tech. Named to the Perfect Game All-American Classic team.
