12/27/2015 - Baseball Factory Christmas Camp & Tournament at Pirate City - Session 2 Strantz is a 2017 grad that played SS at Pirate City. Defensively, Austin showed a strong, accurate arm and made all routine plays effectively. Developing more efficient footwork will add to putting Strantz in a proper fielding position with the hands out in front and allow him to play through ground balls and keep the momentum working toward the target adding more carry. At the plate, Strantz hit from a square position and will benefit from developing an activation with the hands to create separation and adding a smooth timing mechanism will allow Austin to get more from his stroke and add extension through contact to generate more backspin line-drives. Heading into the spring and summer, Austin's hard-working approach will help him develop in all aspects of the game.
