Payton Albertson – December 2019
Payton Albertson is a Sohpomore thrower at Weiser HS. Payton’s primary focus is centered around being a “complete pitcher” and on-ramping towards the spring season. He is a hi-ceiling athlete and fast becoming a student of the pitcher position. In baseball, hitting is about “timing”. Pitching is about disrupting that timing. Payton’s early comprehension of effective velocity concepts (what a hitter sees) sets him apart especially as a younger HS thrower. His metrics from our last formal FB Command bullpen were impressive at this point in the off-season (almost equal arm and glove side strike %’s with elevated as an opportunity). It is special when a thrower can chase their upward ceiling with determination and focus.
