Scouting Report

Chase is as “pure” of an athlete as there is. Her athleticism would place her as a top recruit regardless of the sport she was playing. In fastpitch, she is dangerous. Offensively she has a very big bat, recording 7 homeruns in 2013 including a grand slam in the state quarter-finals. Powerful swing, but very patient. Dangerous on the base paths with her speed and vision. Waits for her pitch and then can drive it to either field. Not afraid to take the free base if she doesn’t see her pitch. Her patience is much more mature than other 2016’s. Will lay down the bunt if asked of her.

Defensively she shines most at catcher. She is excellent at blocking and preventing passed balls and wild pitches. Strong arm with great accuracy. Leadership and control of the game from the catcher position. Takes charge and maintains control and great pitcher communication. At 3b Chase has great lateral movement, quick first step, and her powerful arm make her a useful player here as well. Also plays 1b. Chase’s natural well above average athleticism allows her to excel anywhere on the field defensively. Catching is her primary, 3b/1b are her secondary, but you could literally place her almost anywhere on the field and her athleticism in addition to work ethic would have her performing in a few days. I would venture to say she’s a utility player if she spends more time at other positions.

Academically she is exceptional as well. A 3.5 GPA, Honors graduate and AP, and Beta Club member. Chase Paladino will be a great addition to any college softball program and will no doubt give everything asked and expected, and more. For more information on Chase:
