+ Chicago Scouts Association brought with them a collection of the best players primarily from Illinois and Wisconsin, but it was Michigan’s RHP Nick Chittum (Gross Ile HS, MI; Eastern Michigan commit) who starred from the bump. In front of a sea of scouts, Chittum continually spotted his hard 88-91 mph fastball in the upper third of the zone and bats just couldn’t keep up. The Eastern Michigan commit was also a standout at our Midwest ProCase event in July and demonstrated a little more polish in Westfield this weekend. The separator for Chittum is his changeup, thrown aggressively and at arm speed, that features swing-and-miss fade with deception. The breaking ball also features some late bite, making him a tough at-bat, no matter what.

Pitching: On the mound has a calm motion working to his balance point after raising his hands above his head. Steps back throwing with an easy arm action from a high 3/4 arm angle. Fastball is easy out the hand sitting 88-89 mph. Deceptive change 68-69 mph up that  is thrown with the same arm speed as his fastball. Good command on the pitch. Curve has an 11/5 break down in the zone 72-75 mph with  some late bite. Power arm.
