Slade Cecconi, RHP, Trinity Prep, 2018
University of Miami

2/10/15 - 5-foot-10, 155 pound right hander with a loose lean athletic projectable very young body. Loose easy working arm with a fluid delivery with a high ¾ slot. High front side. Lands slightly across his body. Occasionally front side flies open. Fastball was 82-86 mph with some arm side run. Curveball was 65-66 mph with good ¾ rotation. Had some feel for his changeup at 72-73 mph.  Struggled with control tonight but just because front side was flying open and balls were getting away from him.

Andrew Vaccacio, LHP, Dr. Phillips, 2015
St. John Community College 

2/20/15 - Uncommitted senior. 5-foot-10, 170 pound lefty with a loose lean athletic projectable body on a smaller frame. Some effort in delivery with fluid arm action. Drop and drive type delivery. Aggressive approach. Attacks hitters with an 82-83 mph fastball with tail action. Curve ball was a big loopy ¾ breaker with good rotation at 66-68 mph. Changeup was 73-74 mph and dropped his slot to throw it. Can help a college team somewhere next year.
