Top Performer Spotlight: 2022 1B/LHP Zachary Fike (Medina HS)


Dan Cevette
President, New York

Over 600 players attended our Preseason All-State events spanning from Feb. 15 - Feb. 24. 100's of players caught the eyes of our professional scouting staff, all with dreams of playing baseball at the next-level. Over the course of the next few months I will be highlighting "Top Performer Spotlights" on players who really stood-out at the Preseason Events. Let's get started.

Top Performer Spotlight

CEVETTE'S QUICK HIT: Fike, who is only a freshman, has an imposing stature, very physical for his age. His batting practice was solid, using a repeatable barrel path that has natural lift, hands get away from his body at times but the contact was consistent and hard. On the mound he oozes projectability. The delivery is quick but uses sound mechanics, gets over his front side without restrictions and the arm-swing is longer and quick, the fastball sits in the upper 70's currently  but there's no doubt he will be a mid to upper 80's lefty in the future. Excited to see him continue to progress over the next 3/4 years. 

2/15/19

Projectable 6-foot-0, 170 pounds with wide shoulders. Offensively- The left-handed hitter stands tall in the box with loose hands. Slight leg lift and stride towards the pitcher. Balanced throughout the swing. Displayed a flat bat path through the zone, consistent line drives to all fields in the hitting portion. Exit velocity of 86 MPH. Defensively- Attacks the ball with active feet. Soft hands and good range around the bag. Makes throws from a ¾ arm slot with an infield velocity of 75 MPH. Pitching- The LHP pitches with a quick tempo and repeatable delivery. Use a high leg kick to generate power down the mound. Smooth hand separation with a ¾ arm slot and command of a 3 pitch mix. FB peaked at 78 MPH with arm side run, CB 63-65 MPH, and feel for a CH at 68-69 MPH. The 2022 graduate has a high ceiling and is someone to follow in the future.
