10/11/2020 - Official College Recruiting Membership - Sauget (St. Louis), IL We've seen Witzel once per year since he entered high school and his progress over these last 2+ years has been significant. In the last year, his arm strength has gone up from 81mph to 87mph, his pop times have shaved down from 2.27 to 2.05 and his exit velocity off of the tee has gone up 10mph to 87mph. In addition, Christian has improved all of his athletic testing measurements most notably his 60 yard dash down to 7.07 seconds and his broad jump up to 8'6". Witzel is an interesting mix of strong defensive catcher and quick twitch athlete. We look forward to continuing to watch this 2022 graduate continue to blossom.

07/16/2019 - College PREP - Sauget (St. Louis), IL Christian continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities with a promising future on the diamond. Behind the plate, pop times have improved as he threw his lowest time to date at 2.27 as he gets rid of the baseball quickly. Arm strength is solid (81 mph velocity) with accuracy and on line carry through his target. Hands are soft / sure and he sticks balls in the zone. He shows off his athletic abilities through the blocking process as he is a wall behind the plate. At the plate, he shows a closed setup with balance. Hands are loose and work through an aggressive approach. He makes consistent contact through a line drive approach. Power will increase as he utilizes his lower half more efficiently through the swing.

07/17/2018 - College PREP - Sauget (St. Louis), IL Christian is an athletic and talented 2022 Catching prospect. Behind the dish, Christian presents a low/early glove and works behind the ball. He has a quiet set up in both stances and leads with his glove when blocking the ball. He has a clean exchange and creates momentum in his lower half when throwing the ball to 2B. At the plate, Christian starts in a squared stance and keeps a quiet head. He has a simple approach, loads knee to knee, and stays balanced through contact. Christian will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.

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).
