Nathan Lape is a tall lean athletic 6'5/195 OF from Huntington NY. After seeing him first at the Sunshine East he was an easy selection for the National. He runs very well and has a MLB average arm. He is far from polished as an outfielder, but the big league tools are there. He's also far from being a polished hitter. What Lape has is unbelievable raw hitting ability. Some of the best we've seen. His swing is not pretty but he can center on the ball and hit rockets as well as anyone we've seen. It's hard telling just how good he might end up being. He has the gift of being a natural with the bat. He projects to hit with big time power. Nathan is an excellent student who should create a lot of interest with top 40 college programs. He has a future in pro ball too.

Nathan Lape is a 2005 OF/1B from New York. Lape was one of the pleasant surprises of the Showcase and received an invitation to the Perfect Game National Showcase based on his performance. He’s a 6'5", 200 lb. athlete with long legs and arms with excellent overall MLB tools. Lape’s long legs and easy stride give him plus MLB speed underway (6.63 - 60) and he showed surprisingly good base running instincts for a young prospect from New York. Lape also covers a tremendous amount of ground in the outfield and has a good throwing arm. His big future tool, though, could be his power potential. Lape generates good bat speed and has excellent extension out front. He starts his hands low and has some bat waggle in his load so he doesn’t take full advantage of his leverage, but Lape could become a prodigious extra base threat down the road. He is a natural hitter who makes solid contact with very little effort. Lape plays very hard and is a good student as well. The sky is the limit with this athlete!
