WWBA Fall Championships
(October 8, 2016) Wallace is a big boy at 6-foot-5, 235-pounds, and his 86-88 fastball is difficult for hitters to pick up as it jumps out of his hand, seemingly picking up a second gear halfway to the plate.  He struck out four over five innings while yielding just three hits.

Western PA Top Prospect Games (June 14, 2016) Physical 6-foot-5, 235-pound righty sat 81-84 with a long arm motion. Tendency to pull arm across his body which leads to occasional command issues. As he grows into his frame and better incorporates lower half command should improve and velocity is likely to spike. Also flashed a curveball at 66-68 that showed 11/5 rotation. Worked three innings with three strikeouts.
