03/08/2020 - College PREP - Fresno, CA Kai Hori is a 5'8/150 lbs left-handed hitting SS that will graduate in 2021. At SS, he has efficient footwork and showed good range to his backhand side, making plays with smooth actions. His 1st step quickness was impressive as he created angles early and picked his hops. His arm played well across the diamond and he flashed the ability to throw from multiple arm slots. At the plate, his hands and hips worked together to spray the ball to all fields. Kai displayed good balance through the swing and hit off a firm front-side allowing him to generate fast bat speed when paired with his direct path. Contact was consistent and pop was sneaky for his frame - as he hit 86mph with his exit velocity. Overall - we enjoy watching players like Kai and feel he has tremendous upside in the game. We really look forward to having him at the Senior Fall Classic in October!
