07/31/2019 - Baseball Factory National World Series at Pirate City - Session 2 (Ages 14-18) Nick continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities. Foot speed has improved as he ran his best 60 time to date, now an outstanding runner at 6.92. In the OF, he takes a quick first step and moves lightly on the balls of his feet. Range is a plus as reads balls well off the bat and covers a lot of ground. Transfer is smooth with strong throws (84 mph velocity) through his cut off. At the plate, he continues to shine through an athletic setup. He has strong/centered balance with fluid rhythm to load. Hands are quick and work through a level swing path with lower half working well through the swing. He has strength in his swing with power showing best to the pull side. On the mound, fastball showed a range of 76-78 mph with sinking action. Breaking ball displays 11/5 shape with gradual break. He maintains arm speed on his changeup with sinking action. Control is solid as he attacks hitters and throws strikes with all his pitches. Stock on the mound will continue to rise as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. Mental makeup is a plus as he has a great personality, is very coachable and works hard to be the best player he can be.
