11/16/2017 - Baseball Factory Select Training & Competition at Pirate City (Ages 12-14) Alan continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities. Foot speed has improved as he ran his best 60 time to date. Behind the plate, pop times have improved as he threw his lowest time to date at 3.39. Feet are active working in line through a clean transfer / exchange. Times will continue to drop as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program and works to get rid of the baseball quicker. Glove action is soft as he sticks balls well in the zone but needs to present a lower target. He uses his body well through the blocking process but needs to get down sooner and improve lateral movement. At the plate, he shows a tall setup. Hands are loose and work through a level swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields. Power will increase as he works to utilize his lower half more efficiently. Mental makeup is a plus as he is very coachable and works hard to be the best player he can be.
