12/10/2017 - Interactive Video Program - Nyack (NYC), NY Chad is a skilled 2-way player (LHP/1B) who can swing the stick. Offensively, this left stands in with centered balance and rhythm in his hands. He takes a hack at pitches he likes, squares the ball up and engages his lower 1/2 well. At 1B, Chad hustles to his right and left and tracks GB's into his mitt. He moves well around the bag and can pick it. On the mound, this LHP has a 3-pitch mix coming from a 3/4 arm slot. He maintains fluid tempo, keeps his eyes on the target and repeats well. FB ranges from 62-64 mph while CB is at 56 mph. Continuing to work on the following will help aid in his development on the diamond.
