01/18/2019 - Baseball Factory Spring Training in Arizona (Ages 12-14) Nicholas is an athletic and talented 2023 SS prospect that worked hard all weekend. At SS, Nicholas starts in an athletic stance, he's on time with his prep step, and anticipates the ball off the bat. He presents a low/early glove, has a clean exchange, and throws from multiple arm angles. He needs to continue to be aggressive to the ball and play through the backhand. At the plate, Nicholas starts in an athletic stance, loads his hands back into the drive position, and has explosive hands to the ball. He needs to continue to be aggressive on the fastball and have a middle approach. Continuing to attack the inside part of the ball, creating backside drive with his lower half, and getting extension through contact will allow him to drive the ball more consistently. Nicholas will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.
