07/17/2018 - Baseball Factory National World Series at Pirate City - Session 1 (Ages 12-14) Ben continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities. He did show behind the plate for the first time at the event. On the mound, arm strength has improved as he threw his top velocity to date at 68 mph. Fastball shows slight cutting action. Breaking ball displays 10/4 shape with loose spin and gradual break. He slows arm speed on his changeup, tipping off pitch to hitters. Behind the plate, pop times showed a range of 2.47-2.87 with accuracy on his throws. Times will continue to drop as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. Feet are quick in gaining ground through a clean transfer / exchange. He shows a solid setup and sticks balls well in the zone and utilizes his body well through the blocking process but needs to work to get down sooner. At the plate, power potential has improved through an athletic setup. Hands are quick and work through an aggressive approach. He works to stay inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach. Mental makeup is a plus as he has a great personality, is very coachable and works hard to be the best player he can be.

Tool Grade Scale

Our main goals with the BF "10-70" Scouting Scale are to provide the player with a realistic evaluation of his "PRESENT" abilities (what he can do today), and to provide college coaches with information they can use to identify and/or compare potential recruits.

Tools are graded for all players and pitchers, regardless of age or graduation year. However, for High School players we use only grades 20-70 (grades 10-18 do not apply), while for Middle School players we use only grades 10-52 (grades 55-70 do not apply).
