06/20/2018 - Baseball Factory Select Training at the College World Series (Ages 12-14) Blake is a C/OF that has plenty of room to grow as a player. Blake shows a good ability to block bad pitches and to keep the ball in front of him. Blake can see a lot of improvement in his game through footwork, receiving and throwing velocity drills. Some footwork drills that could help are shuttles, cone drills and ladders. These drills can help with Blake's explosiveness and range behind the plate, so he can make hard-to-reach plays as well as balance and strength for throws. A drill that will help with Blake's receiving would be soft-hand drills. This drill will help with glove accuracy as well as pitch sticking and eye-tracking. To improve Blake's throwing velocity, band work with throwing progression can be a big help. At the plate, Blake shows a closed set up with a good center balance and decent hand quickness. Blake shows improvement in exit velocity by making a jump from 42mph to 67mph. Blake could see improvement offensively by working on getting separation of stride foot and hand load along with utilizing more of his lower half.
