    Switch-hitting C Josh Bard is the state's best college position player. He has power from both sides and always finds a way to put up solid offensive numbers despite an unorthodox approach to hitting. Bard pressed a bit with the bat this spring and became prone to swinging at bad pitches. Defense is the strength of his game. He is solid behind the plate with an accurate, if not overly strong, arm. Scouts praise his take-charge approach.
