Notes

3/27/24

Rose-Hulman commit. Was the leadoff hitter for the Maroons and batted third. Stands in an athletic 6-foot-2, 173-pound frame. A left-handed hitter at the plate, Pipkins went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run. He starts in an upright setup and has a simple load that shifts his weight before moving into a direct, quick swing that’s flat through the zone. Quality defender at first base, moves well around the bag and showed a strong arm in pre-game.
