Frankie Pizzo, 3B, Shenendehowa HS, NY (2016)
Pizzo stands 5-foot-9 175-pounds with a solidly built frame. At the plate he starts wide with some weight shifted on his back side and he keeps his hands high. On the pitch he uses a back load, heel lift and stride before driving his hands inside the ball with a short path. His bat plane is slightly inclined through the zone and his finish is shoulder height with some recoil. He shows signs of a powerful swing generating 84 mph off a tee exit velocity. At 3B he has smooth, clean actions to the ball, funnels the ball to his belt with a clean transfer. He uses a short arm action to a low-3/4 slot showing above average arm strength at 82 mph. Fun player to keep an eye on.

Pizzo definitely shows all the signs of an up and coming player. Going into his Junior season with Suburban Council powerhouse Shenendehowa, expect big things out of this young third baseman. He shows some pop offensively with an 84 mph exit velocity and on the defensive side of the ball he’s very smooth while generating a quick 82 mph missile across the diamond. We are excited to see him again Oct. 18th at our Last Chance Showcase in Latham NY.
