With an Major League Baseball scouting report that calls out a 96 mph fastball and his go-to pitch the “power curve”, good things were expected for Nick Hanson as he wraps up his senior year at Prior Lake High School.

Hanson, who originally signed a letter of intent with the University of Kentucky back in the fall, got the call from the Cincinnati Reds in the third round (79th pick overall) of the MLB draft that took place this last week.

PLABA wishes to extend congratulations and best wishes to Nick on his selection, and in his professional baseball future.  Make us proud, Nick!
