01/17/2020 - Baseball Factory Spring Training in Arizona (Ages 12-14) Nicholas showed improvements in several areas of his game during his time in Arizona. Behind the plate, Nicholas plays with energy, he has good body language, and he sits in well. He tracks to his glove, tries hard to keep the ball in front when blocking, and he throws with solid direction to 2nd base. Offensively, Nicholas stands in the box with a tall/open stance, he takes a short stride toward the pitcher, and rotates his core through the ball. He has a level bat pat and he can hit well to the opposite field. Nicholas is a coachable young player and he shows solid teamwork.
