Entire Event Roster

Today we highlight our middle infielders; let's take a look:

Middle Infielders

Kobe Stenson SS / Liverpool, NY / 2020

One of the tip flight 2020 grads in the state; soft hands; athletic actions up the middle with above average glove side range. Easy effort stroke in the box with line drive results; gap potential.



Kyle Gordon SS / 3B / Xaverian, NY / 2019

6-foot-1 175 pound left side infielder. Spread setup at the plate; repeats timing. Has shown ability to drive the pull side gap. Serviceable at SS but may fit the 3B profile at the next level. 




Brett Myers SS / 2B / Lowville Academy, NY / 2020

Strong, athletic frame at 6-foot-1 175 pounds. Has shown some pop from the left side of the dish; sweeping swing path that repeats. Active, athletic approach at SS with more of 2B snap release. Should be able to handle 2B/SS/3B and possibly a corner outfield spot if need be. 





Kenneth Dodson Jr SS / OF / Suffern , NY / 2019

High end athlete with an above average arm from the left side. Recently committed to Canisius. A pleasure to watch perform. 





David Cifonelli 2B / OF / Bishop Grimes, NY / 2019

Repeatable lefty stroke; serviceable actions up the middle and in the outfield. Looking forward to seeing him over the course of game action. 





David House SS / OF / Bishop Ludden, NY / 2019

5-foot-11 165 pound right-handed hitter with respectable numbers across the board; spread stance with a sweeping swing path. More of a 2B projection at the collegiate level. 





Alex Wurster SS / 2B / Central Square, NY / 2020

First time attendee who also plays for the Syracuse Baseball Club. 





Max Odum SS / 2B / Elmira, NY / 2020

Short, direct swing path that stays in the zone. Under control defender. Strength gains and experience will continue his upward trend. 





Isaiah Zuchowski SS / 2B / Poland , NY / 2021

First time attendee at 5-foot-6 120 pounds. The right-handed hitter also plays for Baseball U of CNY.





Michael Lombardi SS / RHP / Fox Lane, NY / 2022

Lombardi had a great summer and a solid, all-around effort at the ENY ASG back on September 15th. Strong through the zone; can handle the left side and has been up to 78 MPH on the mound with a feel for secondary pitches. 





Nicholas Haviland SS / 3B / Westhill, NY / 2021

First time attendee that also can pitch. The left-handed hitter also plays for Baseball U. 





William Ruth 2B / C / Ithaca , NY / 2021

Another first time attendee that plays for Baseball U of CNY. 5-foot-7 120 pound right-handed hitter. 





Caleb Walker SS / Deposit , NY / 2021

Solid middle infielder that started for Class D State Champions at 2B. Displayed actions that will play from both sides of the bag. 5-foot-10 165 pound left-handed hitter that will be a player to follow. 





Anthony Lapine SS / RHP / Liverpool, NY / 2021

2021 grad that made his way into our summer Scout Blogs; flashed tools as a position player and as a pitcher on separate occasions. 





Alexander Murray 2B / RHP / Weedsport , NY / 2020

Saw Murray almost a year ago; was a bit of a front foot hitter then. Looking forward to seeing his growth over that time frame. 





Jake Zawadzki 2B / SS / Westhill, NY / 2021

Another first time attendee. The 5-foot-5 128 pound right-handed hitter also plays for the Syracuse Elite.
