Windham High School is about 15 minutes from me. I'll have to check out this future Husky when and if there's a 2021 season. There is some talk about flipping the seasons, moving low contact sports (e.g. baseball) to the fall, and high contact sports (e.g., football) to the spring.Both PerfectGame.org and PrepBaseballReport.com are reporting another UConn commitment.
Brady Afthim, RHP/catcher, High School Class of 2021 from Windham High School in Maine.
Here is an almost two year old comment from his profile on PrepBaseballReport.com:
5-foot-10, 155-pound right-handed hitting catcher and pitcher. Ran a 7.7 sixty at the event. Behind the plate he showed well, pop time of 2.1 and threw 78 mph down to second base. The transfer and feet can continue to improve behind the dish as he matures. The receiving is trending upward and he shows the ability to handle the glove. The bat has a tee exit velocity of 80 mph. The setup is even in base, the front foot takes a small step to the ball. The path is long, however, the hands work freely. The frame needs additional strength added to it to aid the development of the bat. On the mound, the the fastball sat 81-83 mph, minimal arm side run to the pitch. The spin pitch is 65-68 mph, good shape to it. The changeup is a developing pitch. The delivery is online with his feet, above ¾ in slot. The glove comes across the hitters face, adding deception. The lift is repeated, small head lean as the arm comes through. The arm is really quick and he showed very well at a young age.
Tee Exit Velocity- 80 mph
Catching Velocity- 78 mph
Pop Time- 2.1
60 Time- 7.7<
Normally I would look for confirmation elsewhere as well since both these websites get these commitments wrong on occasion. Since both websites are reporting on this commitment, we'll take it.
