05/28/2017 - Interactive Video Program - Murfreesboro (Nashville), TN Ben is an OF/LHP who will graduate in 2023. Defensively in the OF, he takes active routes/angles as he tracks down fly balls catching them at its highest point. He comes and gets the GB, fielding in an athletic position and has a clean exchange to throw. On the hill, this lefty keeps his eyes on target and delivers from a hi 3/4 arm slot. He gets to a solid balance point, separates on time and stays directional towards home plate. With the bat, Ben shows a balanced/square setup with smooth rhythm to load. He explodes his lower 1/2, swings on a direct path through the zone and drives pitches to all parts of the field. Overall abilities in his game will improve with work on the following.
Defense 1. Lateral range 2. Quicker release 3. Arm strength (long toss) Pitching 1. Pound zone with strikes 2. Stronger frontside 3. Finish strong Offense 1. Improve bat speed 2. Develop more power 3. Contact points
