07/31/2019 - Baseball Factory National World Series at Pirate City - Session 2 (Ages 14-18) Nick is a solid and athletic 2021 2-way prospect that worked hard all week. At SS, Nick has a good first step to the ball and creates angles when fielding the ball. He needs to continue to be on time with his prep step and present a low/early glove. Improving hip mobility will improve his overall athleticism at the position. At the plate, Nick starts in a tall stance, he has a simple load, and uses his lower half when attacking the ball. Getting his front foot down on time and keeping a quiet head will improve his timing to the ball. He takes big swings but needs to get shorter to the ball and improve his contact rate. On the bump, Nick gathers over the rubber, he separates on time, and has a quick arm action. He has a herky jerky motion and throws across his body. Finding a balance point and working downhill will improve his ability to throw down in the zone. Nick will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.
