Wenatchee ace receiving national attention

Dustin Driver’s less than a month away from starting the spring season on the mound, about a year away from beginning his collegiate career, but is already garnering serious national attention. A blog entry by Baseball America highlights the right-hander’s recent progress on the mound and details the work he’s put in to become a more complete pitcher. His fastball — which tops out at 94 mph — and his physical makeup — Driver stands at 6-foot-2 and weighs 200 pounds — have drawn the attention of scouts for some time and helped him earn his scholarship with the UCLA Bruins. But its all the other stuff that could really give his baseball career a shot in the arm. The highly-touted Washington product’s been working with Bud Adams, the vice president of sales at the Wenatchee Valley Sports Complex, to add more to his arsenal. Essentially, Driver’s gone from a physical specimen with a wicked fastball and a tight curveball to a four-tool pitcher with a two-seam fastball and a changeup — both of which are coming along nicely. Driver’s regarded as one of the top two athletes in Washington, and for good reason. And if he keeps making strides and continues to polish his skill set, there’s no telling how far he could go. It should be an exciting spring.
