Notes

4/20/24

Uncommitted. Currently ranked No. 23 in the state. Lean, athletic 5-foot-11, 157-pound frame. Started in centerfield and hit out of the leadoff spot. The left-handed hitter has a patient approach, quality zone awareness, drawing two walks on the day. Reached base with a bunt single, recording a 3.88 down the line. Aggressive on the basepaths, always looking to take the extra base, quality reads out of the hand with a quick first step. Rangy defender in the outfield, moves well to all angles, covers ground easily, takes charge and commands the outfield. High-follow 2026 prospect.

2/24/24

OF Dominic Battista (Oswego East, 2026) continues to demonstrate an upside left-handed stroke at the plate. Listed at 5-foot-10, 157-pounds with lean limbs and room to add on strength, Battista creates whip through the zone with a flat path, staying on-plane and in the zone for a long time; maxing out at 89.6 mph for his top EV with a max distance of 336’. He has some present athleticism, as demonstrated by his 31.3” vertical jump. Easy mover with athletic actions in the outfield, topping out at 87 mph from a crow hop. Currently ranked No. 18 in the state.

10/06/23

Continuing his impressive play beginning in the summer, OF Dominic Battista (Oswego East, 2026) kept the ball rolling this past weekend. Currently ranked No. 19 in the Illinois 2026 class, there is a lot to like with Battista’s game and what he presents on the field. Offensively, Battista is a top of the order left-handed hitter that has a knack for getting on base and making things happen on the basepaths. Defensively, Battista covers a lot of ground playing centerfield and is a very vocal player on the field that plays the game hard.

9/29/23

In yet another look, OF Dominic Battista (Oswego East, 2026) continued to produce in front of our staff, highlighted by consistent contact at the plate from the left side. Battista presents effortless power and bat speed in an athletic 5-foot-11, 165-pound frame. The left-left prospect plays the game with fluidity, and a sneaky aggression, especially at the plate. While he didn’t have much to show for on Saturday morning aside from one hit, Battista caught barrels in nearly every one of his at-bats. It’s a constant trend that our staff has witnessed throughout the summer and now into the fall, as the No. 19 ranked prospect in Illinois’ 2025 class solidified himself as a name-to-follow in the offseason.

8/08/23

Left-handed hitting OF Dominic Battista (Oswego East, 2026) has shown well to our staff across multiple spots this year and he wrapped up his summer with another strong look at the Illinois State Games. The 5-foot-11, 165-pound sophomore has above-average bat speed from a short, direct swing that produced line drive contact throughout his BP round. Battista continued to prove he’s an advanced pure hitter for his age, picking up a few hits in the gameplay portion of this event, including a double. He looks the part of a quality defender in the outfield too with fluid, athletic footwork and a strong arm that topped at 87 mph in his workout.

Hit leadoff in his game on Monday. Had a strong game at the plate, going 3-for-3 with three singles, two runs scored, and an RBI. Showed well above-average speed by stealing two bases, taking extra bases, and advancing on balls in the dirt. Used his speed in the field to play a quality centerfield getting efficient jumps and reading balls well off the bat. Made a diving play late in the game to save a double. 

6/17/23

Went 3-for-4 on the day with two doubles and a single. Each ball was hit hard, and showed power to all fields. Batista has a smooth lefty swing and is able to get off his A-swing each time with balance through contact. Showed well-above average base running, taking extra bases and advancing on balls in the dirt.  

6/15/23

Battista emerged as one of the top players at The Rock this weekend. Athletic, 5-foot-11, 165 pound frame with room to grow. Impressed at the plate on Thursday showing off feel for the barrel with three hits including a double. Hands work quickly to the ball and are loose. Explosive swing that worked to the middle of the field. Flashed some power to the pull-side with a towering double. Quick runner out of the box. Above average movements in the OF.  A high-follow 2026 to keep an eye on the rest of the summer.
