LATEST PG SHOWCASE REPORT
2020 Jr. National Showcase  
James Hays is a 2023 RHP/1B, 3B, IF, OF with a 6-1 200 lb. frame from Hawkinsville, GA who attends The Westfield Schools. Ran a 7.02 second 60 yard dash. Primary righthanded pitcher with a strong build, displayed some serious arm talent with a fastball that sat 88-91 mph and topped out at 92 mph with the ball coming out really easy, mixed in a tight spinning 11-5 curveball with the ability to land it for strikes, showed a lot of confidence in the changeup throwing it to lefties and righties for strikes, did a nice job repeating his mechanics allowing him to maintain velocity and pound the zone, tones of upside left on the mound. Secondary infielder, fields the ball out front and does a nice job getting it across the diamond quickly with a strong arm and quick release topping out at 89 mph across the infield. Lefthanded hitter, starts with a wide base and uses a leg lift trigger, works short to the ball with some quickness in the hands and the ability to create some lift. Excellent student. Verbal commitment to Georgia.
