08/01/2012 - Baseball Factory National World Series at Pirate City - Session 1 Kennedy continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities. At the plate is where he has improved the most through an athletic setup. His hands are quick, flashing bat speed through a level swing path. He works to stay inside the ball and shows a feel for the barrel with the baseball jumping off his bat when centered. Power numbers will continue to improve as he learns to use his lower half more. At the event, he was 4 for 7. Defensively, he showed as an OF/2B with athletic feet that attacks balls. Throws are accurate but will benefit by building more arm strength through a long toss program. Mental makeup is a plus as he displays a positive attitude and works hard.
