Personal

I have been the starting shortstop here at Pomona-Pitzer for all four years of my college career. As a sophomore, I earned Third Team ABCA NCAA Division III All-West Region Honors and slashed .351/.423/.511. Last year, as a junior, I was awarded the Defensive MVP award for Pomona-Pitzer. This year I am a captain on the team and have started off the season well, hitting .324.

Although I have only played shortstop in my college career, I am very versatile defensively and would be happy to play any position on the field, including pitching. On the mound I throw 81-82 with good command and a breaking ball at 70-72 and change-up at 72-73.

As a mathematics major, I am also very interested in baseball analytics. Last summer I interned for the Baltimore Orioles as a quantitative analyst and got to spend every day in a major league ballpark. I have experience with cutting-edge baseball technologies including Rapsodo, Trackman, and BlastMotion. I would love to share some of my analytical knowledge with anyone interested overseas.

Although I do not have any official experience coaching youth baseball, I am very interested in starting that part of my career as well. I have enjoyed the time I’ve spent helping to mentor young ballplayers in various youth camps in both summer ball and high school baseball.

Nolan is a very good shortstop. He has great hands, a strong arm and good feet. His ability to read ground balls is superior. He is physical, strong and a very good athlete. He can hit and has great bat control. He can play any position on the field and has a mid 80s fastball on the mound. He’s a leader, an extremely hard worker, and has a great sense of humor. I have absolutely no hesitation in giving him my strongest possible recommendation.
