Perfect Game Profile

An unknown prospect before attending the Perfect Game Sunshine West Showcase in San Diego in early June, which earned him an invite to the PG National Showcase, Backstrom put on a show-stopping power display at the National. The big and smooth lefthanded swinger has foul pole to foul pole power and is also a surprisingly good athlete for his size, with 6.9 speed in the 60-yard dash and very soft and sure hands at first base on defense.
