2019 14U South Showcase  
Jon Shields is a 2023 BHP/3B, MIF with a 6-1 168 lb. frame from Katy, TX who attends Katy. Large, athletic frame with broad shoulders and present strength proportioned throughout. Ran a 7.88 60-yard dash. Primary pitcher and works from both sides, showed best as a righthanded pitcher in this look. Side step moving into a short leg lift and utilizes a long stride coming down the mound while getting to a three-quarters release point with quickness to it. Fastball topped out at 78 mph and maintained velocity well out of the stretch; nice present feel for secondaries, turns over the changeup well with fading life and mixed a curveball at 60 mph, can maintain arm speed better at release. Balanced lefthanded delivery with a leg lift up to belt and slight hip turn at top; worked exclusively out of the stretch and throws from an extended three-quarters release. Fastball topped out at 77 mph with short sink, able to induce ground ball contact and keeps it down well. Curveball worked in the upper-50s with 1-7 shape and developed a consistent release with it. Fields the ball out front in the infield with a wide base, shows quickens to transfer and has the ability to drop slot on throws, carry on throws with accuracy and will continue to refine footwork. Switch-hitter; begins with a wide base and slightly closed stance with a high hand set and lower back elbow lefthanded. Linear path through the zone and creates line drive contact to pull side, occasionally mistimed with lower half mechanics, shows carry when extended. Best contact from the right side, high hands and back elbow in the box. Shows steady timing and a better feel for the barrel, incorporates strength well and shows jump off to his pull side. Excellent student.
