PG Grade: 10
Nick Romero is a well proportioned athletic 6'0/180 SS from Chula Vista, CA. No middle infielder at Tropicana had smoother actions and better hands than Romero and his arm strength plays at any position on the field. Romero’s foot speed is short of ideal but he will have to play himself off shortstop. In our estimation he is the best defensive SS in high school baseball. He’s a switch hitter with a stronger swing from the right side. He can hit and shows surprising power at times. He's simply a great athlete who we understand is a DI QB prospect in football. On the mound he threw 91 with a very easy fast arm and he also threw a sharp 81 mph slider. This is a very special talent. Nick is a good student and will be a high impact college player. He could get some early draft interest also. Nick was selected to the AFLAC All American Team.
