08/04/2014 - Baseball Factory National World Series at Pirate City - Session 2
Drew showed his consistent ability at the Pirate City World Series presented by Baseball Factory. Defensively, he made the routine plays and played the game hard. He goes after everything and was especially aggressive to go get fly-balls. After making plays with mostly sure hands, he threw with an accurate arm. Speeding up his feet and becoming more agile will increase play in the middle of the field. Offensively, he hit with a balanced stance and good approach. He was direct with his bat path and had good coordination with his hands & hips. Drew showed improvement to his pitch selection in this event showing he has developed since his last event. On the mound, he competed staying directional and throwing strikes. He tried to work in, but had a tendency to leave the ball too far over the plate. Overall - we have seen growth in Drew's ability over the past few event and we look forward to tracking his development as he goes home to focus on his weaknesses and maintains his strengths.

Drew is a lean SS/RHP that will graduate in 2015. Feet are active and as he works to square balls up and makes the routine plays, displaying clean hands. He needs to attack balls more, improve foot quickness, and present hands more out front to continue to improve defensive grade. Throws are accurate and gets rid of the baseball quickly but needs to build more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, Dark shows a squared / balanced approach. Hands are loose and work through a short / level swing path. For grades to continue to improve, he needs to work to get stride foot down sooner to work on time. Power numbers will continue to improve as he learns to load more and use his lower half more efficiently. On the mound, fastball shows a range of 68-72 mph with arm side run. Breaking ball displays short, sharp break. He maintains arm speed on his changeup, showing a feel for with arm side run.
