Halas a very talented two way prospect has a bright future at the next levels and it should be fun to watch where exactly he lands in a couple of years. Whether it's in the middle infield, outfield or on the mound it's Tyler's bat that that will keep him playing for quite some time.
Coach Koutnik commented by saying "He is a special player because of his versatility in the field and on the mound but it's his bat that's something special! I have coached a lot of good hitters over the years, played 6 years in the Yankees Organization and all I can say is the kid can swing it with the best of them. He has a short path to the ball, extremely quick hand with power and his barrel stays in the hitting zone a long time while producing some serious back spin on the baseball".
Halas a member of the 2011 USA Baseball 14U National Team that won gold in Venezuela and the 2012 USA Baseball 40 Man Trials Roster has already made a big impression on a number of major Division I college coaches who have expressed interest and we expect that trend to continue. Perfect Game, every university and all 30 major league teams will get some additional looks at Halas as he gets ready to attend the top three recruited PG events of the year.
Halas will be with his Team DeMarini 2014 class at the Kernels Foundation Championships in Cedar Rapids, IA on September 21-24th, Underclass World Championships in Ft. Myers, FL on October 4-8th and will finish out the 2012 baseball season at the PG World Championships in Jupiter, FL October 25-29th with Team DeMarini
