LATEST PG SHOWCASE REPORT
2019 14U National Showcase  
Justin Best is a 2023 OF/MIF with a 6-2 170 lb. frame from Cornelius, NC who attends Hough. Large, athletic frame with square shoulders and a long, lean and projectable build with room to fill throughout moving forward. Ran a 7.05 60-yard dash. Primary outfielder, moves well to the ball and fields it out front, hands play out front, can continue to refine footwork, quick release on throws from a shorter arm stroke through the back, strength projects nicely and shows present accuracy on throws. Lefthanded hitter, begins with a wide base and a high hand set and back elbow at the plate; hand movement pre-pitch and employs a leg lift trigger for timing in the box. Utilizes a middle of the field approach and able to generate leverage out front with loft to his pull side. Long full path through the zone, looks to lift at point of contact, projects to hit for big power at physical maturation. Very good student. Named to the 14u National Top Prospect List.
