02/08/2020 - Interactive Video Program - Palmyra (Harrisburg), PA Nicholas increased arm strength to 62 MPH and he ran his best 60 to date at 7.21 seconds during his last workout with The Factory. At 1B, Nicholas makes plays through athletic actions and playable footwork. He fields squarely, his exchange is clean, and throws with a short arm action to his target. In the OF, Nicholas has quick feet, makes plays, and his exchange is clean; throwing with an accurate arm to his cut off man. Offensively, this LHH has an open stance, loads his hands well, and hits well to the opposite field. Abilities can continue to improve with work on the following.

07/07/2019 - Baseball Factory Cleveland All Star Experience (Ages 12-14) Nicholas is a coachable 1B prospect who worked hard on his skills during the Cleveland All Star Experience. In the field, Nicholas starts in an athletic ready position and makes the routine plays. He throws from a 3/4 angle and keeps his throws accurate to his target. Getting into a lower fielding position can help Nicholas improve defensively. At the plate, this LHH sets up in a closed stance and works to barrel up the baseball, making solid contact. Nicholas can improve as a hitter by working a smoother load into his swing. With five more years to develop, Nicholas has the time and potential to further progress his skills on the field.

02/09/2019 - Interactive Video Program - Palmyra (Harrisburg), PA Nicholas worked out at 1B and in the OF during his last workout with The Factory. In the INF, Nicholas has playable hands and feet, and he makes the routine plays on balls hit his way. He keeps the ball in front of his body and throws with some accuracy to his target. In the OF, Nicholas is aggressive to the ball, he makes plays on balls hit his way, and he throws with accuracy and direction to his cut off man. Offensively, Nicholas has a square set-up, he puts the bat on the ball, and the ball tends to jump off his bat when centered. Overall skills can get better with work on the following.

Infield
1. Fielding position
2. Exchange
3. Release
Outfield

11/15/2018 - Baseball Factory Select Training & Competition at Pirate City (Ages 12-14) Nicholas is an athletic and talented 2024 1B prospect that made several adjustments throughout the weekend. At 1B, Nicholas has good footwork off the bag and communicates well on the infield. He needs to continue to present a low/early glove, field the ball in front of his body, and be balanced off the bag when holding runners. Continuing to build arm strength through his throwing program and improving his first step to the ball with agility work will elevate his game to the next level. At the plate, Nicholas starts in a squared stance, loads his hands back into the drive position, and tracks the ball well. He needs to continue to get his front foot down on time, attack the inside part of the ball, and create backside rotation with the lower half. Nicholas continues to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.

10/13/2018 - Mid-Atlantic Regional Hitting Weekend (Ages 12-14) Nicholas is a hard-working prospect that was engaged at all times and made several adjustments throughout the Mid Atlantic Hitting Camp. At the plate, Nicholas starts in a crouched stance, and sees the ball deep into the contact zone. He keeps a quiet head and gets the barrel to contact consistently. He needs to continue to load his hands back into the drive position, get his front foot down on time, and create rhythm in his hand's pre-pitch. Attacking the inside part of the ball and creating backside rotation with his lower half will allow him to drive the ball gap to gap consistently. Nicholas will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.

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).
