Player Notes: Forty40 East Coast Championships


CBC Baseball Club

William Bryant, IF/RHP, Myers Park HS, 2022
6 foot 1, lanky, projectable build.  Sets up balanced from the right side.  Short bat path to the ball and keeps his barrel in the zone.  Continually found his barrel during two games, lining balls gap to gap.  Average hands on the infield with an accurate arm that has carry across the diamond.  Fastball up to 81 mph off the mound, sitting at 79-80 mph.  Curveball has some bite to it, and he throws it with aggression at 65-69 mph.  Long arm swing, throwing from a high ¾ slot.  Should see his stuff jump as his body matures.
