Player to Watch: Jeffrey Diaz
Hometown: Tomkins Cove, NY
Travel Team: Kings Baseball
Over the course of the last year, Jeffrey Diaz has put up some wild stats to earn his Player to Watch recognition. In addition to leading all classes with an 82 MPH exit velocity at the 2018 BY Myrtle Beach All-American Games, Diaz clocked 80 MPH on the JUGS gun and hit four bombs on Championship Sunday. Diaz followed up his AAG performance by putting on a show with Baseball Youth Elite in Pigeon Forge at the Ripken Experience this spring. In just three games, Diaz belted three home runs while notching seven RBIs, and if those stats weren’t enough, he’s also blasted 60+ homers while batting .520 for this season!
Baseball Rebellion’s Eric Tyler breaks down this week’s Baseball Youth Player Watch Jeffrey Diaz. Eric points out how Jeffrey does an awesome job turning his barrel on a high pitch that allowed him to MASH it out of the park!
