WWBA Round Robin Scout Notes: Day 1 | Day 2

Isaac Armstrong (2023, Denver, N.C.) had an impressive weekend for the South Charlotte Panthers as they went 3-0-1 in the WWBA Round Robin. The multi-talented athlete, listed at 6-foot and 175 pounds with broad shoulders and plenty of room to fill out, showed off a power and speed combination that is hard to find. The ECU commit went 4-for-9 on the weekend, adding 4 RBI, a double, a triple, and a mammoth home run to left. Utilizing a wide and balanced stance, the right-handed hitter has a quick leg lift to shift into his backside and then he delivers the barrel with complete aggression. The bat path is short and direct, allowing him to use the whole field. His home run was a high, majestic shot to the pull side and just to show he could, his double was a line drive that stayed true down the right field line. Armstrong possesses plus foot speed already and this served him well on defense as he patrolled the outfield and then showed his glove would play on the infield as well. By the way, he is also a bullpen option for the Panthers as his fastball will sit in the mid-80s, competitively filling up the zone. There is very little this prospect cannot do on the ball field, and he delivers in the clutch with regularity.  

Alex Wade (2022, Decatur, Ala.) continues to be a consistent performer with the East Coast Sox-Franchise. Hitting in the four-hole for a very potent lineup, the 6-foot-3 and 190-pound long, lean Wade has broad shoulders and has present physicality with much more to come. An exceptional runner, especially for someone with his long limbs, he covers an enormous amount of territory in the outfield. His reactions off the bat and instinctual angles will make him an elite defender and based on his 90+ mph fastball on the mound, arm strength is not a concern. All of that said, his bat may be his most exciting tool. Setting up slightly open and comfortably upright, the Auburn commit creates tremendous leverage and natural lift as he throws the barrel at the ball. He knows how to get on plane and create length through the zone and the ball gets off his bat in hurry. With his talent in the field, at the plate and on the mound, it will be fascinating to watch his game develop over time.
