Andrew Bailey, RHP, Honeoye Falls-Lima HS, NY (2015)
Bailey stands 6-foot-0, 195-pounds with a solidly build frame. On the mound he uses a balanced approach with good separation and drive towards home. He throws from a high-3/4 slot with a fastball sitting 83-84 mph. His curveball has serious 11/5 hard downward shape at 74 mph. He finishes over his front side knee with a slight turn towards first base. He located both his fastball and curveball for strikes showing advanced hand speed. From 3B he uses quick, balanced footwork to get around the baseball, fields away from his body, slightly to his glove side, funnels smoothly to his belt, clean transfer. He throws form a high-3/4 slot, 83 mph arm strength, gets his back side through his throws. At the plate his setup up is wide, weight shifted back, back elbow high. He uses a small toe tap and stride for timing, powers his hands inside the ball, slightly inclined bat path through the zone. He uses long extension though contact, shoulder height one handed finish. His exit velocity was 90 mph off a tee and he ran a 4.39 home to first time.

From The Gridiron
Bailey is a dual threat athlete that not only excels at baseball for Honeoye Falls-Lima HS, but is running all over opposing defenses this fall on the football field as well. The shifty senior running back has rushed for close to 500 yards (497) on 85 carries averaging nearly 6 yards a run. He adds six touchdowns to this seasons resume as the teams leading rusher.

Analysis:
Bailey is a gifted athlete who's first love is baseball. On the mound he brings a strong work ethic, mid 80's fastball from a power slot, and a devastating curveball. His game also coverts well from the corner showing a strong accurate arm, great lateral movements evidenced by his football numbers, and a power bat to the middle of a lineup. This spring will be a monster season for Bailey, until then he will keep breaking tackles on his way to a 1,000 yard season at Honeoye Falls-Lima HS.
