Brody Bumila was playing JV high school baseball as recently as May, and he is now Perfect Game's top Massachusetts prospect in the Class of 2026.
The 6-foot-6, 195-pound left-handed pitcher added 14 pounds in six weeks at the end of the summer and has since seen his maximum fastball velocity tick into the upper-80s at national showcase events. While he can not be formally recruited until Aug. 1 by NCAA rule, he recently attended a prospect camp at Wake Forest University and is now on the radar of multiple D1 Power Five coaches.
It's a rapid rise for Bumila, who played junior varsity for 90 percent of the spring season with Bishop Feehan (Mass.) before earning a call-up to varsity at the end of the regular season. Bumila struggled with his command at the start of the summer with the GBG Northeast Hawks while showcasing a fastball that sat between 83 and 85 mph.
Bumila, who has grown three inches since the start of the spring season, settled into his pitching mechanics by the start of August, and his last three starts with the GBG Northeast Hawks were dominant. He took the months of August and September to focus on his nutrition with Kinetic Fuel co-founder Julie Nicoletti, who is also a nutritionist for the Boston Bruins.
