Isaac Ballou is a 2009 OF/P with a 6'2'', 180 lb. frame from Smithfield, VA who attends Nansemond-Suffolk. Isaac is super athletic in the outfield with a big arm. His arm reaches the low 90's from the outfield and he uses his 6.60 speed well as he glides to balls hit his way using good routes. At the plate he has quick hands and ball jumps off his bat in a hurry. He has a good line drive swing plane and stays through the ball. His bat projects well and he has 5 tool potential. As his bat develops even more he could skyrocket up the lists. Very interesting 2009 to follow. He is also a good student.
