Nicholas Andrews, Washington baseball: With an arsenal of a 93 mph fastball, 83 mph breaking ball and a 78 mph change-up, Andrews was set to put together a commanding senior season before it was interrupted by the coronavirus outbreak. After a stellar junior season helping Washington to the Class 3A state tournament, the 6-foot-3, 215 pound right-hander constructed an impressive summer, throwing in the 2019 Area Code Games and the Oklahoma State games which garnered attention from pro scouts. “He’s just proven in the offseason to work on his craft,” Washington coach Jeff Kulbeth said. “It’s one thing to throw real hard but another to throw hard and throw strikes and to be sharp with other pitches.” Andrews signed with the University of Oklahoma in November.
