06/24/2017 - Omaha National World Series - Session 2 (Ages 14-18) Nathan continues to show steady progress in his baseball abilities. Pop times showed in the 2.39 range with accura-cy on his throws. Times will continue to drop as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. He tracks the ball well and sticks balls in zone, displaying a soft glove action. He utilizes his body well but needs to work to get down sooner. At the plate, he shows a tall setup. He makes consistent contact with power showing best to the pull side. Power will continue to improve as he utilizes his lower half more efficiently. Mental makeup is a plus as he is extremely coachable and works hard to be the best player he can be.

He displays smooth / fluid actions with hands / feet working well together through the fielding process. Throws are accurate but will benefit by building more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, he continues to show as a switch hitter and has improved from the right side where he projects best. Hands are loose and work through a level swing path as he works to stay inside the ball, utilizing all fields. Power numbers will continue to improve as he works to utilize his lower half more aggressively through the swing.

09/27/2015 - College PREP - Bellevue (Seattle), WA Nathan continues to work hard on his skills. Offensively, this switch hitter currently shows more naturally from the left side.

Working to get into a loaded position sooner will help to improve abilities with the bat. At 2B - Nathan hustles into a low/square fielding position. He is sure handed, gathers smoothly and has a clean exchange to throw. Backhand play is clean as he works through it toward his target.

More aggressiveness and working on the balls of his feet will help to increase lateral movements. Only a 2018 grad - Nathan will continue to work to get his game where he wants it to be.

11/07/2013 - Baseball Factory Select Training & Competition in Arizona (Ages 12-14) Nathan continues to show improvements in his overall abilities.

Tool Grade Scale

Our main goals with the BF "10-70" Scouting Scale are to provide the player with a realistic evaluation of his "PRESENT" abilities (what he can do today), and to provide college coaches with information they can use to identify and/or compare potential recruits.

Tools are graded for all players and pitchers, regardless of age or graduation year. However, for High School players we use only grades 20-70 (grades 10-18 do not apply), while for Middle School players we use only grades 10-52 (grades 55-70 do not apply).
