The top non-pitching high school prospect in the country Nick Gordon swings Easton & Rawlings. In fact, most at bats show him using the S1 BBCOR bat although a few he also uses the 5150 from Rawlings. The Florida Baseball Gatorade Player of the Year who has a brother, Dee Gordon, playing on the dodgers went into the 2014 draft as the highest rated Short Stop Prospect in the draft.
As a high school senior, Nick hit for an outrageous .494 average and .788 Slugging percentage with 10 doubles, two triples, five home runs, 27 RBI and 13 stolen bases in all of 99 plate appearances.
