01/23/2022 - Official College Recruiting Membership - Palmyra (Harrisburg), PA Nicholas lowered pop times and showed well at the plate during his last workout with The Factory. Behind the plate, Nicholas showed a soft glove, he tracks well, and he sits in athletically. He works hard to keep the ball in front when blocking, his exchange is clean, and his arm is accurate with consistency to 2nd base. 2.22 seconds was Nicholas' best pop time. Setting up a bit lower, and playing more through will help catching skills continue to get better. At the plate, Nicholas has an athletic stance, a rhythmic swing, and fast bat speed. He makes square contact, he hits well to pull side, and he uses his lower 1/2 well. Hitting can continue to get better with a more direct barrel and letting the ball travel deeper into the hitting zone.

12/27/2021 - Baseball Factory Christmas Camp & Tournament at Pirate City - Session 2 Nicholas continues to shine on the diamond with his baseball abilities at the Pirate City Christmas showcase. Behind the plate, feet are active as he works in line through a clean transfer / exchange. Pop times showed in the 2.31 range with accuracy / carry (80 mph velocity) on his throws. Times will continue to drop as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. He shows a squared setup and presents a soft mitt out front. He utilizes his body through the blocking process, centering balls well out front. At the plate, he shows a squared setup. Hands are quick (81 mph exit velocity) and work through level swing path. He makes consistent hard contact through a line drive approach. Power will increase as he utilizes his lower half more efficiently.

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).
