Lots Of College Interest In Piasecki After Future Games

MUSKEGON - Two unofficial visits and a Division I offer have come since Aaron Piasecki participated in the Future Games in August.

“The Futures definitely helped with video streaming,” the Mona Shores junior related. “I had a ton of coaches reach out after that and I had phone conversations and a lot of video chats. Coaches are showing interest from a lot of schools. I’ve talked with pretty much all of the MAC and a few Missouri Valley schools. There have been 15 all together, including a few D-II. But I’m looking at D-I.”

However, the 27th-ranked 2022 in Michigan admits the recruiting process is not what he had hoped.

“It’s definitely been different with Covid,” Piasecki said. “It really makes it tough. I’d like to get on campus and talk with coaches, that’s what I really want to do. The big thing for me is I want to meet and talk in person.”

Unfortunately, it is a changed world at this time leaving Piasecki no other choice than going through the recruiting process from a distance.

“My travel organization has been a big help,” Piasecki said in reference to Diamonds Baseball. “Billy Peterson, who owns Diamonds, gets a lot of video out. He has a lot of connections and catches the eyes of a lot of coaches so they can see that you’re improving.”

Making strides in his game is something that the third-rated junior shortstop in the state is doing.

“I’ve been hitting the weights hard,” Piasecki noted. “It’s been reasonably warm here and the high school field has been open so I go there with buddies and grind it out. I’m also starting Driveline.”

Piasecki, who just turned 17 a month ago, has one area of the game in particular he would like to improve on.

“I want to get better with my speed,” Piasecki admitted. “I ran a 6.8 at the Future Games and want to get down in the 6.7-6.6 range. I’d also like to add maybe a little more power.”

But there is a part of his game that stands out - defense.

“Coaches really like my arm speed and they like my range,” Piasecki pointed out. “They like my lateral quickness. I get to the ball pretty quick.”

That is just part of what has grabbed the attention of Aaron Wilson, PBR Michigan Director of Scouting.

“He has an energetic personality that is contagious in the dugout,” Wilson noted. “He plays the game with a high motor and goes all out. He’s a middle infielder with sure hands along with a gap-to-gap bat that fits at the top of the order.”

The fourth-ranked uncommitted 2022 in the state has had the desire to play college baseball since he was young.

“It’s been a dream forever,” Piasecki said. “I remember when I was little talking with my dad who played at a community college. It’s always been a dream of mine.”

The idea of playing at the next level has started becoming more realistic of late.

“When I joined the Diamonds last fall I had my first college call with Ball State,” Piasecki reflected. “Billy set it up. After that I’m thinking this could go somewhere.”

Piasecki believes he can make a difference in a program at shortstop.

“I’ve played it my whole life,” Piasecki said. “I really like making the tough play .. the slow roller and the backhand where you really have to show your range. The coaches I’ve talked to like my big arm and think I can stay on the left side of the infield.”

A 3.97 student considering business or computer science as a major, Piasecki looks forward to what lies ahead in the coming months.

“I’m projectable, the only thing holding me back is my height,” the 5-9 160-pounder said. “I’m still hoping to grow a couple inches. I also would like to put on some weight, that’s the easy part.”

The hard part comes in deciding on a place to call home in the future.

“I’d really like to make a decision in the next few months, but it’s tough with the dead period,” Piasecki concluded. “And I’d still really like to meet the coaches.”
