12/12/2015 - Hitting Accelerated Training Weekend (Ages 14-18) Nick starts from a square, athletic stance in the box. He works through a leg kick to trigger the lower half and activates the hands properly into a solid launch position. When Nick allows the ball to travel deep into the proper hitting zone, he shows a short and compact stroke to the inside portion of the baseball and drives through contact. Nick should continue to work on the consistency of his stroke and allowing his aggressive, attacking approach to be a bit more controlled to let the ball enter his zone. A 2019 graduate, Nick has years to continue to work on his game at the plate and get the most out of his ability.
