Fastball sits 83-84, topping 87 with good hidden late action. Curveball is above average at 74-76 with hard, late 10/5 shape.

Prep Baseball Report New York is pleased to announce the 2016 New York Games will take place on June 27 - 29 in Rochester NY. The 2016 New York Games is expected to be the most recruited and scouted event of the summer.

More than 40 of last year’s participants registered 60 times under 7.049 players delivered exit velocities of 85 MPH or better. 10 catchers notched pop times south of 2.0. 3B Frankie Pizzo (Shenendehowa HS, 2016) topped 18 infielders who threw north of 80 registering 89 MPH across the diamond while 20 players threw 80 or better from the outfield.
