At SS, Hayden has athletic actions, quick feet, and he fields the ball athletically. He fields smoothly, makes plays consistently, and throws with accuracy and strength across the diamond. On the mound, Hayden shows good confidence, a simple delivery, and a loose/quick arm action. He has good direction toward home, he uses his lower body well, and competes in the zone.

Hayden is a SS out of Baltimore, MD in the class of 2023. Defensively, he showed fluid footwork with the ability to adjust on the fly. He fields the ball in a low fielding position while presenting the glove out front of his eyes. He works through the baseball with clean exchanges wand makes quick/accurate throws to his target with carry. At the plate, he displayed great rhythm and timing while staying on plane with the pitch. His bat path allows him to makes square contact often and work all parts of the field. Hayden is a promising athlete who we believe can take his athletic career to the next level.
