07/28/2017 - Baseball Factory National World Series at Pirate City - Session 1 (Ages 14-18) Nathaniel is a big 1B/C who continues to better his game as he graduates in 2018. At the plate he starts from an athletic stance and is direct through the zone showing quick bat speed. The ball jumps off his bat as he shows the ability to drive the baseball to all fields. Behind the plate, he centers the ball on his blocks and receives with sure hands. He makes accurate throws down to 2nd with a clean exchange. At first base, he fielded balls out in front and took good angles to the baseball. He also showed the ability to dig balls out of the dirt. Improving footwork will help Nathaniel improve defensively. Nathaniel has good upside and intangibles to have success on the diamond.
