  • 1BPosition Projection

10/13/2018 - Mid-Atlantic Regional Hitting Weekend (Ages 14-18) Nathaniel is a lanky prospect that worked hard and made several adjustments during the Mid-Atlantic Hitting Camp. At the plate, Nathaniel starts in an athletic stance, has a loose grip, and loads his hands back into the launch position. He gets his front foot down on time, stays balanced through contact, and drives the ball to all fields. Nathaniel needs to continue to attack the inside part of the ball and get his top hand extended through contact. Nathaniel is very coachable and eager to learn. He will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.

06/24/2018 - College PREP - Columbia, MD Nathaniel is an athletic C/1B prospect who will graduate in 2020. Behind the plate, Nathaniel shows fluid footwork and is very agile when blocking balls in the dirt. He sits in an athletic stance and receives the ball with soft hands. He shows a quick, clean exchange and gains momentum well on his throws to 2B, keeping them consistently on-line to the bag. Nathaniel can improve as a C by presenting a lower target to the pitcher. At 1B, Nathaniel shows active footwork and flashes good lateral range. He gets into a low position and fields the ball with soft hands. He has a clean exchange with a quick release on his throws, keeping them on-line to his target. Nathaniel can improve as a 1B by consistently getting a four-seam grip on the baseball to prevent arm side run on his throws. At the plate, this LHH sets up in an athletic stance and takes a square stride. He is smooth getting into his load and hits from a firm front side in his lower half. He takes a direct swing with fast bat speed which leads to line drives into the gaps. Nathaniel can improve as a hitter by gaining more separation in his load. Overall, Nathaniel is a solid prospect who has the potential to further develop his skills on the field.

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 (tools), 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, using the scale below. However, grades 10-18 are not available for use with High School players (ages 14-18), while grades 55-70 are not available for use with Pre High School players (ages 12-14). These instances are marked as "--- N/A ---" in the "Description" fields below.
