12/11/2020 - Baseball Factory Academic All-American Tournament Hayden is a solid, R/R catcher in the 2021 class. Behind the plate, he uses a quick exchange to get rid of the ball, showing a strong arm (80 mph) with accuracy on his throws down to 2B. Hayden also showed well at the plate, starting in an athletic/square setup with intent. His small/simple load allows him to be on-time while he whips the barrel with + speed to and through the zone. He produces consistent line-drive contact recording an exit velo of 83 mph. Hayden is a solid prospect looking to make an impact this upcoming (senior) season.
