01/14/2022 - 2022 Baseball Factory Pre-Season Prospects Tournament (MS)
Haydon is a smart 2B/RHP out of Washington, IL in the class of 2026. At 2B, he had quick feet and worked around the ball well to get square and field the ball out front. He makes clean exchanges and accurate throws to his target. In the batters box, he uses a slightly crouched stance with a short stride to work an on plane bat path to the ball. His path enables him to make consistent contact with a line drive approach. On the bump, he did a good job of working in line to the mitt with a good tempo. He threw a fastball which topped out at 64mph and a curveball with a 11/5 action that ranged from 54-55mph. Haydon is a strong player who will continue to develop his game over time.
07/22/2021 - Baseball Factory National World Series at Pirate City - Session 2 (MS)
Haydon is a coachable MIF prospect who worked hard on his skills during the National World Series at Pirate City. In the field, Haydon shows active footwork and is agile moving to the ball. He gets into an athletic position and fields the ball out in front of his body. His exchange is clean and he gets rid of the ball quickly, making accurate throws to his target. Long tossing can help Haydon build up his arm strength. At the plate, this RHH sets up in a tall stance and takes a controlled stride. He gets into a simple load and drives through well with his lower half. He works through a smooth swing and sprays the ball to all fields. Haydon can generate more pop off the barrel by continuing to add strength. With five more years to develop, Haydon has the time and potential to further build upon his skills on the field.
