First baseman Pratto was the 14th overall selection in the 2017 amateur draft, by the Kansas City Royals out of Huntington Beach High School in California. He was both a pitcher and a position player in high school, and he would have continued as a two-way player had he gone on to college, but the Royals stated they were interested in him strictly as a hitter.
As a youngster, Nick had been one of the heroes of the Huntington Beach, CA's teams win in the 2011 Little League World Series, stroking the game-winning hit in the finale against Japan. He again stopped Japan in the 2015 U-18 Baseball World Cup. He hit .200/.359/.200 for the tourney and was 2-0 with a 1.26 ERA and 17 K in 14 1/3 IP. He beat Japan in the finale (they had been 8-0 before then). He tied for the tournament lead in wins, was 4th in batters fanned and was named tournament MVP.
He made his professional debut in 2017 with the AZL Royals. In 2018 he entered the year as #2 prospect in the Royals' organization and was a mid-season All-Star in the Sally League, and was also named the "Top Star" of the circuit's All-Star Game.
