About Nick Dini
After A Stellar High school career at Monroe, Nick played D1 for Wagner College. Dini became Wagner’s first-ever NEC Player of the Year while becoming just the second Seahawk to lead the conference in hitting (Jack Scholz) after he batted .400 during his final season on Grymes Hill. Nick earned a spot on Wagner’s all-time career hits list with 245.
In 2015, Nick was Drafted in the 14th round by the Kansas City Royals. Dini played a total of 88 games between the Lexington Legends (Class-A) and the Northwest Arkansas Naturals (Double-A) in 2017. In 24 games with Lexington, the Monroe Township, NJ native batted .283 with a .323 on-base percentage and a total OPS (on-base + slugging percentage) of .780. He earned the promotion to Double-A Northwest Arkansas back on May 30 following a pair of home runs, 11 RBIs, ten doubles and a slugging percentage of .457.
In his first game with the Naturals, Dini went 2-for-3 with a double. Fast-forwarding to June 7, Dini connected on his first home run of his Double-A career against the Springfield Cardinals (Double-A affiliate of the St. Louis Cardinals) to lead off the bottom of the third inning in a game that the Naturals won, 5-4.
For the year at Double-A, Dini finished with a .310 batting average, to go along with a .381 on-base percentage and a .761 OPS. In addition, he ended the season with two home runs, 25 RBIs, 17 walks, and eight stolen bases while being caught only twice. In 79 games behind the plate, Dini threw out 34 of 97 would-be base stealers en route to earning recognition on the Kansas City Royals MILB.com Organization All-Star list.
