03/24/2013 - College PREP - Rochester, NY Nicole is a talented young SS with a lot of potential. Defensively, she tracks the ball well off the bat with a solid first step, has athletic actions and is an accurate thrower. She will benefit from playing lower at the hips, raising her arm slot and adding a pre-pitch prep step to keep her feet active at all times. She applies coaching very quickly and showed the ability to make adjustments on the fly which speaks to her maturity as a young player. At the plate, Nicole uses a closed stance with no load, a short stride and keeps her weight centered before launching to the ball with her short, aggressive bat path. She generates explosive bat speed through the zone and should continue to work at using her lower half aggressively on every swing and keeping her stride strait to eliminate a slight tendency to dive into the ball and cut off the lower half. Overall, Nicole has a great approach to the game and needs to continue to seek quality instruction and reps to ensure her development progresses steadily over the next couple years.
