Northeast Qualifier Scout Notes: Day 1 | Day 2

Day 3 of The Northeast Qualifier brought the start of bracket play and there was plenty of key hits and big arms that took the field as teams started the run towards a coveted WWBA World Championship bid.

University of Maine commit Sebastian Holt (2021, Woodbridge, Conn.) got the start for Elite Squad in their round of the 32 match-up with a tough South Jersey Young Guns and delivered six innings of one run ball to propel his squad to a 3-1 victory. The big-bodied righthander works from a rather simple delivery with good lower half usage and various leg kicks, holds and hesitations to the leg lift. Holt pounds the zone from a loose three-quarters arm slot, producing plenty of arm side run and precision to both sides of the plate. The fastball has plenty of velocity to it, evident by him sitting the upper-80s for most of his outing but the separator in this outing was the ability to disrupt timing with the aforementioned leg kicks and the seemingly disappearing act that his curveball did to the opposing hitters. Collecting 7 of 12 strikeouts on the day with it, Holt is able to manipulate the shape of it from pitch to pitch, adding and subtracting to it velocity and varying its depth. The Woodbridge, Conn. native came up clutch for his team as they inched further into the bracket.
