11/16/2017 - Baseball Factory Select Training & Competition at Pirate City (Ages 12-14) Andrew is an athletic 2024 C/2B prospect. He was a grinder all weekend at Pirate City and made several adjustments to improve his game. Behind the dish, Andrew has a clean exchange and efficient footwork when throwing to bases. Starting with a big target and relaxed wrist will allow him to be soft, but firm when receiving. Presenting a lower target in his secondary, and anticipating balls in the dirt on breaking ball counts, will allow him to be on time when blocking. At the plate, Andrew starts in an athletic stance, uses his backside, and is aggressive on the fastball. He shows a middle approach and keeps his head down on contact. Attacking the inside part of the ball, and using the lower half will allow him to drive the ball to all fields. This will continue to keep Andrew balanced through contact and keep his swing path direct to the ball. Andrew will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.
