He has power and speed and can play some elite defense.
His ability to put it all together on the baseball field is something that should be celebrated by baseball fans in all walks of life, regardless of the team.
This man can flat out play baseball and do it at the highest level.
His speed is perhaps his most impressive attribute, and it was on full display during today’s game against one of his dad’s former teams, the St. Louis Cardinals, when he legged out an infield single.
Sprint speed on Bobby Witt Jr.'s infield single: 31.0 ft/sec. That's tied for his fastest run following a batted ball this season.
30 ft/sec is considered elite. Following a batted ball, he has recorded a sprint speed meeting that standard 13 times in 2022. #Royals

If you hadn’t noticed, Witt is a complete madman on the baseball field.
The man can hit, run, play defense, etc.
He can do it all on the baseball field.
But the fact that he ran 31 feet per second on that infield single is pretty impressive.
We’re witnessing greatness right before our eyes with the way this man can run.
The American League has a solid burgeoning class of rookies in 2022, but Witt might just be the one that takes home the American League Rookie of the Year Award.
He has such a unique skillset that will carry him on his way to become one of the best young players in all of baseball.
30 feet per second is obviously considered elite, but he has met that standard 13 times already this season.
We’ll see what else is in store for Witt as the season progresses.
