Jack Flaherty is a 2014 SS/3B/RHP with a 6-4 205 lb. frame from Burbank, CA who attends Harvard-Westlake HS. Long and lean athletic build, good present strength with more to come. Very fast for his size, 6.37 in the 60, smooth gliding actions in the infield, looks like a third baseman but has deceptive quickness and speed at shortstop, gets rid of the ball very quick and masks true arm strength, soft hands and comes through the ball well, balanced with body control, highly instinctive player. Right handed hitter, deep load, easy fluid swing with bat speed, ball comes off hard, consistent hard line drive contact, has leverage without effort, hits under control, drives right centerfield, doesn't show loft power now but likely to in the future. Didn't pitch but is a very successful pitcher as well. Polished player who performs and sees the game in slow motion. Very good student, verbal commitment to North Carolina. Selected to the Perfect Game All-American Classic.
