LATEST PG SHOWCASE REPORT
2019 14U National Showcase  
James Hays is a 2023 3B/RHP, 1B, IF, OF with a 6-1 170 lb. frame from Hawkinsville, GA who attends Westfield Academy. Large and projectable frame, room to fill and limitless projection remaining. Ran a 7.28 second 60 yard dash. Primary third baseman, worked out in the infield while bending at the waist at gather, fields the ball out in front and works through it well, quick arm action into throws with present arm strength across the diamond, topped out at 81 mph. Secondary righthanded pitcher, fluid delivery on the mound, sits on his back leg and drives properly to the plate landing with a slightly closed front foot, takes his arm back to a clean arm action up to a high 3/4 arm slot, arm speed projects in a big way, fastball topped out at 83 mph with some jump out of his hand, three pitch mix that includes an 11-5 curveball that has potential and a straight changeup. Lefthanded hitter, graded out best in the batter's box, slightly open stance at start, creates real bat speed from his leg lift trigger, creates leverage with a pull side approach, rotational at times and will get too inside with his hand path, meets the ball out in front and the ball jumps off of his bat, project extremely well as a two-way talent. Named to 2019 14U National Top Prospect List.
