Alton is a hardworking and talented prospect that made several adjustments during the Mid-Atlantic Regional Accelerated Training Weekend. At the plate, Alton starts in a closed stance and get his front foot down on time. He creates separation in his load but needs to continue to bring the barrel back into the drive position. He stays balanced through contact, uses his back side, and has fast hands to the ball. Continuing to attack the inside part of the ball and keeping the barrel flat through the zone will help him keep a middle approach.
