LATEST PG SHOWCASE REPORT
2006 National Underclass Showcase  
Antonio Burke is a 2008 OF with a 6'1'', 180 lb. frame from Lithia Springs GA, who attends Lithia Springs HS. He has a lean athletic frame with good strength potential. Burke was named to the showcase Top Prospect Team. He has very good speed and overall body life. His 60 time was 6.69, he was 4.25 down to first base from the right side and showed very good base running instincts. Burke uses his speed well in the outfield and should have the range to play centerfield. He has nice raw arm strength but needs work on his throwing fundamentals in order to bring out his natural tools in that area. Offensively, Burke hits out of a slightly open stance with high, busy hands and uses his hips to get his swing started early. He has good raw bat speed and likes to pull and lift the ball. He has an upper cut swing plane which won't utilize his speed much but will come increasingly into play as he gets stronger. Burke's swing mechanics are raw but the tools are there to be a very good hitter. Burke also took a turn on the mound; he probably should only pitch in team emergencies. He topped out at 83 mph but his mechanics are very raw and complicated.
