Baird is a George Mason commit, he has a lankier athletic frame with some strength present and some projection left to it. Throws from a three-quarters arm slot, short quick loose arm action with some effort to his delivery. Crossfire drop and drive delivery, shoulders are slightly uphill and closed, lands closed with a slight fall off finish and recoil. Fastball was 84-87, touching 88 with some downward angle and a bit of late armside run, pitch rides some when he throws it at the top of the zone. Curveball was 61-62 with some armspeed and sharp hard 11/5 almost 12/6 break to it. Change-up was 72-73 with good armspeed and a bit of late run. Gets swings and misses with his fastball, shows control of the pitch and can move it around the zone. Struck out 10 hitters in his first 3 innings, including 7 batters in a row at one point. Most of his strikeouts came on fastballs near the top of the zone, high spin on his fastball.
