  • SS/OFPosition Projection

01/13/2012 - 2012 Under Armour Pre-Season All-America Tournament Ford showed similar abilities as we had previously seen at Arizona Fall Classic. Foot speed is outstanding and he uses his quick / athletic feet well in attacking ground balls and playing through well with his body. Hands are soft / clean / sure as he makes the plays. Throws are accurate with carry into his target. At the plate, Adam shows a balanced approach with quick hands that work through a level swing path. He is patient at the plate, displaying a solid eye as he drew 4 BB at the event, going 1 for 4.

10/12/2011 - Arizona Senior Fall Classic - 2011 Adam showed very well at the Arizona Senior Fall Classic. He is a wiry strong infielder with a complete skill set and a great motor. He loves to compete and his attitude is contagious in the dugout. In the field, Adam shows great instinct and awareness that combine with soft hands to make him a quality young SS. He shows advanced actions with a clean exchange and plenty of carry on his throws across the diamond. He does have some flair to his game, but shows the ability to make plays when the ball is hit to him. At the plate, Adam is a tough out. He is aggressive and makes consistent hard contact. His line drive bat path and quick first steps out of the box put pressure on the defense. He understands his role and flashes enough plate discipline to envision a very solid lead-off hitter at the next level. Overall, Adam is a natural leader with a high baseball IQ who will help a college program in the middle of the diamond in the future.

05/29/2011 - College PREP - Lebanon (Nashville), TN Adam is an athletic SS that will graduate in 2012. Foot speed is superior as indicated by his 6.65 60 time. Defensively, his feet are very quick and active as he moves well laterally, displaying plus range in the MIF. Hands are presented out front, displaying a soft, clean, and sure glove action as he makes all the plays. Actions are loose and easy as he looks the part. He gets rid of the baseball quickly with life, carry, and accuracy on his throws across the diamond. Offensively, Ford shows a balanced approach and loads well. Hands are quick, flashing bat speed through a level, long swing path. Keeping his hands inside the ball will help him to utilize all fields on a more consistent basis. Barrel accuracy is a plus with power numbers improving as he learns to utilize his lower half more efficiently through the swing. Adam as a lot of potential with the makings to be a solid defender at the next level. He will get looks from the collegiate coaches with his abilities.

Tool Grade Scale

Our main goals with the BF "10-70" Scouting Scale are to provide the player with a realistic evaluation of his "PRESENT" abilities (what he can do today), and to provide college coaches with information they can use to identify and/or compare potential recruits.

Tools are graded for all players and pitchers, regardless of age or graduation year. However, for High School players we use only grades 20-70 (grades 10-18 do not apply), while for Middle School players we use only grades 10-52 (grades 55-70 do not apply).
