Landon Thome, 2B, Nazareth Academy, 2026

Uncommitted, currently ranked No. 6 in the state; No. 250 nationally. Consistently put together quality at-bats against tough left-handed pitchers, showing comfortability in those matchups. Listed at an athletic 5-foot-11, 170-pounds, Thome has a quiet confidence about him in the box, with apparent relaxed actions. The left-handed hitter has minimal pre-pitch movement in the box with a short stride. His hands work quick and direct through the zone to make for an athletic swing with a whole-fields approach. In his first at-bat, he went the other way to the left-center gap for a triple. In another at-bat, he came up with the bases loaded and maintained his approach, ripping a 2-RBI single into right. He finished the day 2-for-3 with a triple and two RBI, making for a solid overall week at the dish.
