Guess the Player
Who is the player in this classic scouting report?     Answer | More reports
6-1, 185, OF: Strong, athletic body. Thick, powerful thighs. Best hitting potential with power to all fields seen in past five years. Very aggressive at plate. Good instincts. Future plus home run power potential. Has everything to be good Major League hitter. Strong, loose, great bat speed, quick into zone, long extension. Can be overanxious. Good kid, hungry to play. Played both third base and outfield, better in outfield. Natural ability, definite hitting prospect.
