06/05/2013 - Under Armour Southeast Championships, powered by Baseball Factory's Team One Nick is a talented C with a developing defensive skill set. As a receiver, Nick catches with soft hands, strong wrists and has a good feel for catching and holding a pitch at the appropriate time. He is a big sitter behind the plate, has a nice low target and will benefit from being earlier to block with his chin tucked and wide base to improve body control. He gets to his feet well to throw and will increase his carry while quickening his pop time if he follows his throws aggressively with his feet. At the plate, Nick continues to uses an open stance and a leg kick to launch to the ball. He has an advanced feel for hitting the ball the other way, can handle the bat well in situational hitting and should continue to work on striding to a soft front foot. Keeping his hips behind the ball, ultimately improving his power production and overall quality of contact should remain the focus moving forward to give Nick more balance in his offensive skill set. Overall, Nick is a fantastic young man and an even better teammate. He brings energy and passion to the park every day and with continued hard work on his game and his fitness, should have no problem achieving his goal of playing college baseball.
