07/31/2013 - Baseball Factory National World Series at Pirate City - Session 1
Alex showed as an OF/2B and RHP at his latest Factory outing. In the outfield - where he projects best - he gained ground taking good first steps and moved with natural instincts getting behind and through balls. At 2B, he showed good athleticism, decent glove work and an ability to keep the ball in front. With his build, he will probably play third if he stays in the infield. Offensively, he has a good lower half, good extension and consistency with contact. Relaxing his upper half and being more direct with the barrel will allow for greater bat speed and power. When he jumped on the bump, he competed throwing strikes with good balance and direction. In all - Alex has a plus baseball build and projects best in the OF where he covers ground and is natural with his instincts.
02/24/2013 - College PREP - Dayton, OH
Alex is a lanky, athletic OF/2B that will graduate in 2014. Foot speed is outstanding as indicated by his 6.91 60 time. In the OF, he utilizes his quick / athletic feet well in taking proper routes / angles in tracking down balls but needs to work on getting behind more to play through and improve defensive grade. At 2B, feet are active as he works to square balls up, displaying clean hands. He needs to attack ground balls, play through, and present hands more out front to continue to improve defensive grade. Throws are accurate, flashing carry but will benefit by building more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, Livingston shows a balanced approach with rhythm. Hands are quick, flashing bat speed through a level swing path. He makes consistent contact, mainly to the pull side as he needs to work to keep hands inside the ball, utilizing all fields and improving hitting grade. Power numbers will continue to improve as he learns to use his lower half more. Alex has abilities with a lot of room to improve.
