07/17/2018 - Baseball Factory National World Series at Pirate City - Session 1 (Ages 12-14) Nicholas is an athletic and talented 2022 catching prospect. Behind the dish, Nicholas needs to continue to be in an athletic primary and secondary stance. Presenting a low target and working behind the ball will allow him to stick the ball more consistently. Leading with his glove to and getting both knee down into a wide and low position will allow him to control the ball with his chest when blocking. At the plate, Nicholas starts in a tall stance and loads his hands back into the drive position. He hits off a firm front side and shows gap to gap power. He has a good approach but needs to be more aggressive in fastball counts. Attacking the inside part of the ball and keeping his head at contact will allow him to be more consistent in his swing. Nicholas will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.
