Perfect Game, Scouting Notes from 18U Southeast Elite Championship

Jayson Longacre (2021, Atlanta, Ga.) carried a perfect game into the final inning of his start before it was spoiled by a hard-hit ball that found its way through the hole on the left side of the 6-4-3 DP Cougars 17u infield with just one out remaining. Unfazed, Longacre was able to collect himself and punch out the following batter for his eighth strikeout of the game, closing out a seven-inning shutout. Named the tournament’s Most Valuable Pitcher, the 6-3, 175 pound righthander was in attack mode from the start with his low 80’s fastball. The heater had quality arm side run and sink that generated plenty of groundballs, pop-ups, and weak contact, as only two batted balls made their way out of the infield for outfield fly outs. Longacre releases his pitches with some effort and solid extension from a three-quarters angle, and his reach down the mound allows the velocity on his fastball to sneak up on hitters.

Jayson Longacre is an elite athlete who contributes to a championship-caliber baseball team in a myriad of ways. He is truly a frontline starter with his fluid, repeatable release and 6’ 3″ long, lean frame. Jayson also brings high-level middle infield skills to his defense profile. In fact,
Jayson grew up as a SS/2B, which he stills plays flawlessly, but with his recent physical growth he has developed a body that translates all over the diamond, including 3B, 1B, and OF, so his versatility is a huge asset, especially when you consider he brings “point guard” skills to all of the positions he plays.

It must also be noted that Jayson, a three-year starter on his varsity basketball team, can dunk a basketball with ease, so again his athleticism cannot be understated. Offensively, Jayson is a patient, cerebral hitter who attacks the baseball with full-extension being a trademark. He hits for both average and power, and he brings plus speed, agility, and awareness to the base paths. He also has an IQ, both baseball and real-world, that will surely be among your team’s highest.

6-4-3 Coach’s Comments:
Jayson Longacre is a 6’3” 180 lb RHP out of Westminster High School. Jayson will sit in the mid 80s with plenty more to come. He is in a very long and protectable frame with much room for growth in the next few years. Jayson has a very long and loose arm, with great family genes to follow. He has the potential to be a 90 mph arm in the next 1-2 years. Jayson has a plus-plus changeup that he can throw for strikes as well as an out-pitch. The confidence he has with his changeup is very impressive, and he can go to it in any counts to any hitters. He throws his curveball effectively and can throw it for strikes. Jayson was the Most Valuable Pitcher in the last PG event of the summer tossing 6 2/3 perfect innings. Jayson Longacre will be a great addition to any college staff.
