Walter on DiPonzio
"Nick is a freshman outfielder who possesses tremendous foot and bat speed. This year he will add depth at all three outfield positions and is the heir apparent to Fairchild in center. As he gets more and more comfortable on the bases and with the short game his role will increase. One day very early in his career he will be a dynamic offensive player."
