Lance Jeffries is a local kid and a Cardinal fan who was brought to Busch Stadium to work out in front of the Cardinals brass. Here’s what we had to say when he worked out at Busch earlier this year.
Lance Jeffries, CF, McCluer HS (Mo.) … 5-11, 195 … Age: 18 – Local product Lance Jeffries put a show in the speed competitions at Busch. He projects as a right-handed hitting centerfielder. Per Goold’s article, Jeffries could “go anywhere from the third to the 11th round”.
Lance has remarkable speed and prides himself on being able to get on base and use it. On the basepath, his 6.55 60 time has helped him emerge as a state leader in stolen bases and combined with his gap to gap power, Jeffries is an extra base threat every at-bat.
One player that made the most of the opportunity was Lance Jeffries from McCluer High in Florissant, Mo.
Jeffries, a 5-foot-10, 185-pound outfielder, ran the fastest 60-yard dash at the event at 6.6 seconds. He also showed a short, quick swing that was on full display when he bounced a ball off the DBAP’s Blue Monster wall in left field for a double.
