Tallahassee, FL- The two starting pitchers dominated for most of this game in a matchup between North Florida Christian of Tallahassee and Nease High School of Ponte Vedra. 2019 RHP Major Posey would get the start for NFC. Posey has been on the rise in the 2019 class after impressing early in the year at the Preseason All-State. The velocity wasn't the 87 mph we saw at the Preseason All-State, but the feel for the above offspeed and overall feel for pitching was.  Posey worked mostly 82-83 mph with his fastball, working down in the zone and attacking both sides of the plate. Posey had previously shown the feel for an above average to plus changeup at 76-77, but featured an above average slider today. It had tight spin, with hard late breaking, sweeping action at 73-74 mph. Posey would go 6.1 innings while allowing three runs on five hits while striking out five.
