Future Games Analysis: Oufielders

Toby Bicknell
Texas Scouting Director

WESTFIELD, IN - The Prep Baseball Report Future Games is the premier summer scouting event for uncommitted underclassmen. 253 college coaches from all over the country were in attendance. This was the first year for Team Texas to participate, with 26 players from around the state, including six that were on Team Select. Over the next several days we will be breaking down every player, based off positions. Team Texas’ roster was loaded with talent from around the state, including seven outfielders. College recruiters looking for power, speed, aggression, or a mix of all three, will want to dig in to this article.






At 6-foot, 200-pounds, Hamm has a strong, muscular frame with a well defined lower half. A two-sport athlete at Bridge City HS, Hamm spends his fall on the gridiron playing running back for the Cardinals. After running a 6.75 60-yard dash, the left-handed hitter put on a serious power display during the August 1 open workout. He starts from a tall, relaxed, slightly open stance. Simple load as he triggers his hands by cocking the barrel before taking a relaxed, short stride. Lands easy with good balance and separation. Short path to contact with natural lift as the barrel gets on plane early, working through the zone with high end bat speed (92 mph) and loud contact. The ball jumps of his bat and he can launch balls with relative ease from gap to gap - and over the right field wall. Hamm got Team Texas on the board in game two as he stroked a long, high, triple off of the right field wall, driving in a run. He drove in another on a missile down the right field line for a double. With his unique skill set of left-handed power and speed - to go with his arm strength (92 mph) - Hamm is sure to draw significant attention from Division 1 schools.
