10/26/2022 - Baseball Factory Best of The West - Upperclass Benjamin is a 2023 OF out of Sitka, Alaska who showcased his skills at the Best of the West Tournament. In the OF, he gets good reads on balls off the bat and creates good fielding angles. He works to get behind ball and plays through with momentum to his target. Clean exchange off of his left foot with hands out front. He made accurate throws into infield, with a loose arm stroke, and an arm velocity up to 83mph. At the plate, he hits from an athletic and closed stance with comfortable hands. He starts with a short/square glide step, with a small hand load, and rotates his lower half to contact point. Gets on-plane early and has a fast barrel through the hitting zone. Showed good barrel control as he hit line drives consistently to all fields. During the tournament, he reached base 7 times with a double, 3 singles, 2 walks, and was hit by a pitch. He also had an RBI. With another year of growth and development, we foresee Benjamin having a bright future on the baseball field.

Exclusive College Recruiting Program Ben is a physically strong LH hitter with defensive versatility and high baseball IQ. Offensively, its a quick LH swing in which he trusts his hands extensively to let them do the work and he find the barrel consistently. He is learning to incorporate more of his lower half into his swing which is starting to generate higher exit velocities and tapping into his power potentially. He has an advanced approach at the plate with strike zone awareness and his natural feel to hit and feel for the barrel will allow his emerging power to play consistently. There is upside to his offensive profile. Defensively, he moves well for a strong frame and is more than capable of playing LF at an average to potentially above average clip. His arm plays well in LF. On the dirt he can play all the positions outside of SS, but shows the best on the right side of the dirt at 1b/2b and enough arm strength to stick potentially at 3b. Its a profile similar to Max Muncy of the Dodgers, but plays in LF as well as on the dirt. He has great baseball awareness and comes with toughness and projection from his background in Alaska. His best baseball is still ahead of him with upside to all of his game.

06/20/2022 - Omaha National World Series - Session 2 (HS) Benjamin is a 2023 prospect out of Sitka, AK who continues to show improvements on the diamond. He did show in the OF for the first time at the event. Foot speed has improved as he ran his best 60 time to date. In the OF, defensive abilities are solid as he takes proper routes in tracking down balls. He works to get behind balls and plays through with momentum to his target. Throws are accurate with online carry (81 mph velocity) to his target. At the plate, he continues to shine through an athletic setup. Hands are quick and work through a level swing path. He stays inside the ball flashing pop. Power will increase as he utilizes his lower half more efficiently. Mental makeup is a plus as he is very coachable and works hard to be the best player he can be.

08/15/2021 - All-In Membership - Honolulu, HI Benjamin is a class of 2023 3B prospect. Tall frame thick build with strength present and room to add throughout. In the infield, he showed the ability pick out hops and track ball to glove. Good glove action, with a clean exchange, and short arm action. At the plate, he hits from an athletic and closed stance. Quiet head and level eyes enable him to track pitches well. Showed good awareness of the strike zone and has a high finish. Made contact to all fields with a bat exit velocity as high as 72mph during BP. With 2 years of continued growth and development, we foresee Benjamin having a bright future on the baseball diamond.

Tool Grade Scale

Our main goals with the BF "10-70" Scouting Scale are to provide the player with a realistic evaluation of his "PRESENT" abilities (what he can do today), and to provide college coaches with information they can use to identify and/or compare potential recruits.

Tools are graded for all players and pitchers, regardless of age or graduation year. However, for High School players we use only grades 20-70 (grades 10-18 do not apply), while for Middle School players we use only grades 10-52 (grades 55-70 do not apply).
