12/27/2018 - Baseball Factory Winter Classic - Session 2 (Ages 12-14)
Nicholas is an athletic and talented 2024 2-way prospect. On the bump, Nicholas shows confidence and competes. He gathers over the rubber, stays directional, and works over the front side. He needs to continue to separate on time and create backside drive toward the plate. His fastball tops out at 63 and he has good command of his changeup. At the plate, Nicholas was aggressive on the fastball and got a nice base hit. He needs to continue to keep a quiet head and be on time for the fastball. Nicholas will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.
