 Name: Jacob Ciccone
High School: South Brunswick
Position: LHP/1B


Scouting Report:
9/20/15 -
Ciccone is 5-foot-10, 170 pounds and has a medium build with room to fill out. Hits from the left-side with a solid base. Has a normal stride length and a lot of pre-pitch movement in his hands. Hands drop during his stride, and when controlled, has a level swing plane. Makes hard contact to his pull side and has raw power potential. Moves well around the bag and throws show carry. Ciccone has above average glove skills for a prospect his age. On the mound, Ciccone pitches exclusively out of the stretch with good tempo. He pitches from a 3/4 arm slot with arm speed. He has good sinking action to his fastball when he keeps his fingers on top of the ball. He does occasionally throw the side of the baseball, causing him to lose control of his arm side run. His changeup has run as well. He does a good job of mixing the two pitches and has big upside on the bump.

3/15/16 - Ciccone (LHP 2019) made the varsity squad for South Brunswick HS this spring. It will be exciting to see what he brings to the table as a freshman for their pitching staff and at the plate.
