SoCal Player of the Week: Tyson Heaton

PBR California Staff

2019 RHP Tyson Heaton of Yucaipa HS has been named the Prep Baseball Report SoCal Player of the Week thanks to his outstanding performance the mound against Carter HS.

Heaton faced Carter HS this week and threw a perfect game in leading Yucaipa to a 5-0 win throwing only 90 pitches on his way to perfection. Heaton’s seasons numbers have begun to catch the attention of our Player of the Year committee. He’s 7-0 with a 1.42 ERA with 62 strikeouts against just 6 walks. Opponents are hitting .185 against him in 42.1 innings pitched.

The win over Carter wrapped up a busy week for the Power 25 #19 Thunderbirds who went 4-1 with their only defeat being a 2-0 loss to #4 La Mirada.

After leading the Thunderbirds to a Division II title to close out the 2018 season,  Heaton had a busy summer participating in some of the largest scouting events over the summer where he showed his upper-80’s to low-90’s fastball to go with his outstanding breaking ball and changeup. After a resting period in the winter it appears Heaton, a longtime BYU commit, is rounding back into his dominant self of a year ago.

For his efforts, Heaton has been named the Prep Baseball Report SoCal Player of the Week for the week of the 25th-31st of March. Prep Baseball Report Salutes Tyson’s hard work both on-and-off the field.
