Ruar Verkerk is an outstanding young promising baseball player. Just turned 16 in September and is already 6′-3″ tall. Ruar has a natural left-handed swing and hits the ball well to all fields. Still needs to learn how to pull the ball and drive the ball to right field, which will happen when he matures and gets stronger. He already plays in a wood bat league against much older competition.  Ruar made the 18 and Under Dutch National Team and competed in the World Cup in South-Korea and attended the MLB European Academy in Italy during the summer.He is strong for his age, but also a hothead when things don’t go his way. Which is in a way a great virtue to have as this is a way to show he really cares. However, in baseball failure is imminent and he will have to learn to deal with this to really fulfill his potential.Off the field, Ruar is very laid back and is a typical teenager. Always wanting to be at practice and learning more about the game.— Evert Jan ‘t Hoen / Coach Tridents / Dutch Rookie League
