12/14/2019 - Florida Regional Offensive Skills Weekend (Ages 12-14)
Ben is an athletic and hard working 2025 prospect that was eager to learn throughout the weekend. At the plate, Ben starts in a squared and athletic stance. He has an activated load with good tempo, and rotates his backside through the ball. He needs to continue to attack the inside part of the ball, recognize the fastball up in the zone, and keep two hands on the bat through contact. Ben will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.

Ben is a long 3rd baseman with a lean frame. Defensively, Ben has playable hands and feet, and he makes plays on balls hit his way. He keeps the ball in front of his body, and throws with accuracy across the diamond. At the plate, Ben can switch hit and is equally as good from both sides of the plate. From the right, Ben stands in squarely, he takes a square stride toward the pitcher, and he makes contact. From the left side, Ben has some balance, he gets the bat through the zone, and he uses his lower body. Ben will need to work on the following in order to improve.
1. Follow throws
2. Fielding position
1. Lower body
2. Bat speed
3. Swing path
