There is nothing like a crosstown rival against two good programs. Impact was in the house to watch as North Stanly hosted West Stanly. Read more to find out about some players…
Colby Hammer (2020 OF, Catawba College Commit) is a true leadoff hitter and spark plug. Hammer lead the Comets with three stolen bases an also had two hits. The quick twitch centerfielder can cover a lot of ground in the outfield as well.
Rhett Lowder (2020 RHP, Wake Forest Signee): was lights out. Lowder threw 6 2/3 innings only allowing four hits and striking out 12. He sat 88-90 and topped 91 mph with the fastball and his strikeout pitch was the 78 mph slider. The Comet starter would also flash a 81 mph changeup to both LHH’s and RHH’s. I would keep a close eye on this kid as the June Draft rolls around.
Michael Crayton (2021 RHP, Uncommitted): got the ball for the Colts last night. The 6’4” righty was 82-85 and topped out at 86 mph. Crayton would also show a 69-72 mph slider that would allow him to compete on the mound. With his size and frame, there is more in the tank for Mr. Crayton.
Connor Tucker (2021 INF, Uncommitted): the smooth fielding shortstop would make every play look easy and showed off a plus arm as well. Tucker, who’s a left handed hitter in the box would show a well-balanced swing with quick hands and looks very mature facing the comets.
Cody Naylor (2020 C, Barton Signee): would be a wall behind the plate. We have seen Naylor earlier this season at our Impact College Coach Camp; he was impressive there as well. On the afternoon Naylor would nail a couple of baserunners on the path for the Comets.
