08/30/2014 - Hitting Accelerated Training Weekend (Ages 12-14)
Amar is a young, ballplayer who works hard and makes adjustments well. He shows a good setup with a square stride, and the ability to be aggressive at the plate. He attacks the pitches he likes and drives them. He needs to continue to work on adding rhythm and tempo to his load while remaining balanced throughout the swing. Amar also needs to develop a more consistent setup and stance; having a solid setup is going to lead to a strong launch position and a consistent swing.

Amar is a 2-way player (OF/SS) who has a small frame. At SS, he shows active prep footwork and moves well into a square fielding position. He moves well laterally, squares the ball up and field it cleanly. In the OF, he takes a quick first step as he works into position behind the fly-ball. He has a clean exchange and works in-line toward his target. With the bat, Amar shows good balance with a solid base. He swings on a level path and is a contact type hitter.
