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.
