01/15/2016 - Baseball Factory All-America Pre-Season Rookie Tournament
Beau continued to impress in his recent outing as a Rookie Pre Season All American. His arm strength has risen to 83 mph, one of the top numbers we have seen for a 2020 grad / current 8th grader. Behind the plate, Fletcher as a good arm stroke which fits his position well and allows him to show off his arm strength while getting good carry on his throws. He has good body control defensively and continues to be a good blocker and receiver. At the plate, he loads his hands well to start the swing, shows good timing and balance, and gets good finish on his swing as a result of a direct bat path. His hitting mechanics and power rival many players that are older than him. Beau will continue to be one to watch, as he is not yet even in high school.
05/31/2015 - National Tryout - Murfreesboro (Nashville), TN
Beau continues to shine on the diamond. At the plate, this RHH shows a balanced approach with a solid base. Quick hands whip the barrel through the zone with authority as he connects and drives the ball to all parts of the field. Behind the dish, he sits in well with athletic actions and flexion. He sticks pitches in the zone framing well. Exchange is quick/clean as he puts his throws on the bag, pop times of 2.20. At 3B, he is aggressive and comes to get the GB. Lateral footwork is quick as he funnels smoothly gaining ground toward 1B. Fletcher (2020 grad) is a very talented prospect who has a ton of upside.
12/27/2013 - Baseball Factory Winter Classic
Beau is a great kid who has a very good attitude and is coachable. Behind the plate, he showed good improvements with his blocking and receiving since his initial tryout. Defensively, he showed good footwork and he is accurate to his target. He can improve as a catcher by working on receiving and increasing lateral quickness/agility, while not letting the ball get too deep on him. On the mound Beau has a very good idea of what he is trying to do. He showed good tempo, and throws strikes as he pounds the zone. He can improve by lengthening arm action, getting more extension on finish, and long tossing for arm strength. At the plate Beau displayed good balance and barrel accuracy but he needs to loosen up actions, develop more rhythm in his load, and be more direct to the ball. Beau was one of the youngest players at the entire event and he showed very well. He has a great attitude and is very coachable, and he will continue to improve as he gets older. He will be one to watch.
