LATEST PG SHOWCASE REPORT
2022 Jr. National Showcase
Ethan Murray is a 2024 SS/2B/OF with a 6-3 184 lb. frame from Buford, GA who attends Buford. Large, athletic frame with square shoulders and a leaner build with room to fill throughout moving forward. Ran a 6.80 60-yard dash. Primary shortstop, refined and clean footwork moving towards the ball, soft actions to the backhand, shorter arm action, sense of smoothness throughout actions and plays under control, easy arm strength across diamond with carry. Similar arm action on throws from outfield, plays back on the ball, can incorporate additional lower half into actions. Also pitched, full hands over head delivery, similar compact arm action through the back with some quickness, shorter stride down the mound and tends to land closed; fastball topped out at 87 mph and mixed a short curveball up to 74 mph. Right-handed hitter, begins with a high hand set and back elbow at the plate with a slightly open stance. Creates big torque in swing, easy bat speed through the zone with big extension out front. Fires hips well, ball jumps off hard to pull side and projects for even more power with added physical strength, loose and easy swing overall. Good student. Verbal commitment to Georgia Tech.
