2017 14U National Showcase  
Grayson Gates is a 2021 RHP/IF with a 6-0 145 lb. frame from Benton, LA who attends Benton High School. Large, athletic frame with square shoulders and a long, projectable build with room to fill throughout moving forward. Primary righthanded pitcher, works exclusively from the stretch, gets tall on backside with a high leg lift up above belt and slight hip turn at top. Medium arm action through the back working to a high three-quarters release point, lands closed with front side and able to create plane and angle from working on top of the ball. Fastball topped out at 80 mph, worked both sides of the plate and lived down in zone, velocity will continue to increase with added strength. Developing consistent overall feel for curveball, shows 11-5 shape to curveball with late depth at 69 mph, able to generate swings-and-misses down in the zone. Fields the ball out front in the infield, quick transfer and quick arm through the back, gets on top of throws and shows carry with accuracy, long strides moving towards the ball. Righthanded hitter, begins with an even stance and a high hand set and back elbow at the plate. Toe tap trigger for timing, upper body dominant swing with a full path through the zone. Uses hands well and stays short to hte ball with a linear swing plane, creates line drive contact and able to work the opposite field. Very good student.
