From Perfect Game

Thomas Hackimer (Amsterdam, RHP, St. John’s) came on to relieve Zurak, throwing a moving fastball from a low sidearm slot. He worked between 83-85 mph with his fastball with command down in the zone. He also showed a feel for a frisbee breaking ball that he could backdoor to lefty batters.
 More from Perfect Game
Although the sidearming Hackimer doesn't have a lofty upside, with a lively low- to mid-80s fastball, his chances for success in professional baseball are higher given his role as a bullpen specialist. His frisbee slider gives him a legitimate and effective second weapon, with the ability to backdoor the pitch to lefthanded batters. He posted a 0.98 ERA in 17 relief appearances in which he struck out 44, walked 9 and only allowed 13 hits in 27 2/3 innings while playing an integral role for the league champion Mohawks.
