5’9 / 150

AGE: 16

BATTING IN:

UNDERCLASSMEN HOME RUN DERBY

PLAYING IN:
WORLD CLASSIC

Jake is going to impact the Skippers Baseball Program for the next two years for sure. He has strong defensive skills showing good speed as well as solid “eye-Hand Coordination”. He will be our Short Stop and may end up doing some pitching down the road.

I will point out what the “Power Showcase” has already recognized about Jake — his abilities as a hitter. Jake has a strong bat the gets to the “Hitting Zone” quick but stays in the Zone long. Jake is not a big by any standard but, at 5’9” 160#…..he can swing it with power. He fights this but, he can switch hit. His dominant “Right” side makes him feel more comfortable. He shows power and capability from the Left Side as well.

Jake Zaetta is a great pick for the “2017 Power Showcase”. With the attention that Houston Astro Jose Altuve has brought to the world of professional baseball, showing all that size in our game is not a determining factor for success, the selection of Jake Zaetta will follow this line of “Good Things Come in Small Packages”! Jake will not let himself or the “2017 Power Showcase” down.
“THANK YOU” for selecting Jake Zaetta to participate in this event. This is truly a privilege and Jake knows this.
