LATEST PG SHOWCASE REPORT
2022 Jr. National Showcase  
Ford Thompson is a 2024 LHP/OF with a 6-0 175 lb. frame from Snellville, GA who attends Parkview. Large, athletic frame with square shoulders and long limbs, room to fill throughout moving forward with solid long-term projection. Left-handed pitcher, holds hands high through delivery, full arm action through the backside working to an extended three-quarters release point; employs a long stride down the mound, some effort at release but ball comes out of hand well. Fastball topped out at 90 mph and sat comfortably in the upper-80s throughout his inning of work, creates big extension and angle at release. Fastball worked mostly true in life through the zone but shows comfort spinning the breaking ball with big sweeping life in the low-70s, able to get it back foot to right-handed hitters. Excellent student. Verbal commitment to Georgia.
