Will is an MIF/RHP out of the Westminster School that is a leader on the field and sees the game as well as anyone. Will’s solid tools play up because he has that ability to focus pitch-by-pitch whether on defense, offense, or on the mound. In the infield, Will has solid range and a good arm, and both these tools play up due to his instincts and quick first step. At the plate, he has a short, line-drive stroke that plays to all fields. He is a fantastic situational hitter and has an advanced two strike approach. On the mound, Will is fearless and goes after hitters with three solid pitches that he knows how to use. Will is a coaches’ dream and makes any team he is on better.
