AZDR Prospect Snapshot: Valley Vista 2020 Catcher Brysen Hamilton (Uncommitted)
The Valley Vista baseball program is headed in a new direction under first year Coach Brady Farrington, and the new skipper is very fortunate to have the leadership of senior catcher Brysen Hamilton at his disposal.
Brysen is a 3 year varsity member for the Monsoon. At 6-3 220 pounds, he is a physical specimen with very good athleticism.
Last spring Brysen hit .339 while playing both corner infield spots, but he will move to his natural position behind the plate for his senior year.
Brysen has had a busy summer and fall. He participated in the MLB/ USA Baseball Breakthrough Series in California this summer. He also played in the USA Baseball 17U West Championships and the Perfect Game 17U World Series.
Next week he will be playing with the Royals Scout Team in the Arizona Senior Fall Classic.
Brysen brings a ton of energy to the field with him every day. He has natural leadership intangibles and an outgoing personality that is very engaging.
His best tool is the bat. He has plus bat speed that should produce big power numbers going forward.
Behind the plate he is a steady, quiet receiver of the baseball and he has a strong accurate arm.
Brysen is uncommitted as of now, but this is going to be a huge pick up for whatever program lands his services.
