Over the weekend, T. J. Wachter helped the East Coast Lumberjacks to a 3rd place finish at the 2nd Annual WWBA Northeast Qualifier held on Staten Island. Here is the recap of Wachter’s performance from Brian Sakowski, a member of the Perfect Game Tournament Staff:
T. J. Wachter (2021, Shoreham, NY) had a good weekend overall as a two-way talent who is committed to Fordham. A big, physical righthanded pitcher and hitter, Wachter impacted some balls violently this weekend with the bat, including a pull-side bomb and a double that went way up the right-centerfield gap. His physical strength and size stand out right away, and he brings the barrel around with intent to do serious damage. He’s primarily a righthanded pitcher and came on in relief in the semifinals on Monday morning, running his fastball into the mid-80s with excellent sink and a good amount of strikes, showing the ability to miss bats both up and down in the zone and really pound the zone with the pitch. He’s definitely an intriguing follow in the Northeast given the power of his arm and bat.
