“Cade is a great sign for us, especially offensively. He’s going to get a lot of playing time because of what he can do with the bat. He hits for average really well and can hit for power, which is a combo you don’t see very often anymore. He hit extremely well in a tough pitchers conference in high school, and had a great fall for the Pirates at 1B. He will play a lot of OF for me, but will also get some time in the IF. He’s definitely a D1 talent, and will be at a division 1 school in no time. You can tell from his swing that he uses leverages and angles very well. I’m very excited to see what he can do for us in the middle of our line-up. He’s got pro talent in his family already; I really wouldn’t be surprised if he played professionally one day.”
