After selecting the best high school baseball player in the nation with the second overall pick in the MLB Draft, Kansas City Royals fans are finally getting a glimpse of what shortstop Bobby Witt Jr. looks like in a Royals uniform. We can only imagine how excited they are to actually see him in action next season.
He looks ecstatic to be in an MLB uniform, and Royals fans should be equally as excited to have him on their ball club. Witt, who turns 19 on Friday, has been labeled by some scouts as the best high school shortstop prospect in a generation.
During his senior season, Witt batted .500 with 15 home runs and 44 RBI in 38 games. He'll be a great addition to a Royals club that is in desperate need of some firepower.
With how bad the Royals have been this season, Witt probably won't have to wait long to get his shot in the bigs.
