Baseball is steeped in Rombach’s family. His grandfather Bob Rombach had a 39-year high school baseball coaching career, helping develop multiple major leaguers. His father Deron Rombach is a national crosschecker for the Braves. Nate has a very heady, focused approach to the game, which impresses scouts. He is a big catcher (6-foot-4, 215 pounds) who is going to have to work hard to stay behind the plate. He has to stay on top of his flexibility to be able to properly receive low pitches and to hold up over a long season. He has an above-average arm. There are plenty of scouts willing to give him that shot because they are confident in his makeup. Rombach has plus power potential with a pull-heavy approach and generates plenty of contact. His bat is good enough that he could potentially slide to a corner-infield spot if he can’t stay behind the plate. He’s signed with Texas Tech.
