Colten Gottlob, a '22 out of Manalapan, NJ, is a middle infielder but also stepped in for Manalapan HS at third base when needed. He's played primarily second base for his Summer Showcase team (The Grind) but may find himself at short stop next season for Manalapan as he saw action there this season for the Braves.
Gottlob is a versatile player with a high baseball IQ and runs a 6.95s 60 and a 4.02s 30. On the 2020 showcase circuit, Colten hit over .390 and has been named to numerous all tourney teams.
Quick hands, great lateral movement and an accurate arm are just some of his attributes, but as a flawless defensive player (zero errors during high school varsity season), Colten prides himself on giving his full effort for his teammates. He's a "whatever it takes" type of player.
Understanding the game is beyond the stat sheet, Colten relishes the opportunity to sacrifice himself to help his team.
The Grind will participate in a Perfect Game Tourney in Richmond County, NY August, 2021.
