There is an element of the baseball community that says once a player has the attention of the scouts, has his national ranking and has his college commitment, there really isn’t any reason for him to hustle around and play at national level events.

Fortunately that is a very small element in the game at this level. The reality is that baseball is a game of repetitions and learning, and the only way you get better is by playing as often as possible against players of your talent level or better.

No player in the 2014 class has ascribed as enthusiastically and completely, and benefited as much, to the 'play as much as you can' path than Nicholas Gordon.
