Packy Bradley-Cooney RHP / OF / Arlington Catholic, MA / 2020

WOBURN, Ma. - Uncertainty best describes the baseball future of Packy Bradley-Cooney.

There was a position change.

The potential of no senior season remains.

Interest from a wide range of schools adds to the issue.

It has the Arlington Catholic 2020 in a dilemma.

“I was relying a lot on the beginning of the year to find my fit,” explained Bradley-Cooney, who has a 3.3 GPA this school year after going through some “grade issues” in his early years of high school. “It’s been pretty disappointing.”

The chance to contribute as a pitcher was something that had recently developed.

“I started to pitch the summer going into my junior year,” the former catcher related. “I pitched in Little League and one inning my first year of high school, that’s it.”

But the move was considered beneficial to his future.

“When I looked at my tools, my arm strength is what stands out so I looked into it,” the 6-2 180-pound right-hander said. “I’m still playing outfield and hitting, but the coaches are deciding if focusing only on that will be better for me.”

Improvement has come in the short amount of time spent on the mound.

“I’m throwing a lot more strikes now,” the fifth-ranked uncommitted senior RHP in New England said. “I’ve also had a good velo jump. Last summer I was 85-87 and my first couple of pens at Cressy this year were 87-89 (at the end of February).
