07/22/2018 - Baseball Factory National World Series at Pirate City - Session 2 (Ages 12-14) Braden is an athletic 2B who has a promising future on the diamond. At 2B, he displays clean / smooth actions. Feet are active as he displays proper footwork as he works to square ground balls up but needs to play through more with his body. Glove action is soft / sure and presents out front. Range will increase as he improves foot quickness. Throws are accurate but will benefit by building more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, he continues to shine through an athletic / squared setup with rhythm. Hands are quick and work through a level swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields with gap-to-gap pop. At the event, he was 2 for 7 with a 2B. Mental makeup is a plus as he has a positive attitude, works hard, and is very coachable. With 4 years to further develop, Braden has a lot of potential with time and room to progress his game.
