Mateo Gil is a baseball player. Plain and simple, he is the real deal. In a competitive area filled with talented baseball players, Mateo has the physical tools to keep up with the best of them. But what impresses the most is his feel for the game. Mateo creates outs defensively where other players don’t see plays. His aggressive style of base running and razor sharp instincts put constant pressure on the defense and he is sure to find a way to take extra bases when given an opportunity. The kid can play any position with proficiency. While he is at his best in the middle infield, he can shut down runners from behind the plate and is equally adept at running down a long fly ball. His natural arm strength and hard breaking ball make him a force on the mound. And after all of that, the young man can flat out hit a baseball. He is seldom fooled, and takes aggressive swings, with maximum plate coverage and extension through the ball. He regularly pounds balls off the fence and you know he’s hot when he drives one 350 to right-center, going opposite field against outside pitches. And while he loves going yard, its the constant barrage of doubles that really stands out. Finally, there is the competitive spirit. Mateo plays with fire in his eyes. He loves to compete and his confidence is unwavering. This is a player that any coach, at any level, wants on their squad.

I highly recommend Mateo Gil for the Power Showcase because he has competed at the highest level of baseball. He made the NTIS North Texas USA team that played in the USA Complex in Cary, North Carolina. He’s highly knowledgeable of the game. He is primarily a SS but can play multiple positions and pitch. He not only plays the part, but also looks the part, flashing the instincts needed to play the game at a high level. He has played up against 17u and 18u teams and has been able to show that he can compete with the older ages. The most admirable facet of his game is his dedication and willingness to work hard to improve.
