05/25/2013 - Little League® Experience - S. Williamsport Brandon is an athletic young player who goes out and competes every game. Defensively, he has good speed/range and tracks the ball well. He does a good job of catching with two hands and working through the baseball. His drop steps/routes need to be deeper so that he doesn't get turned around in the OF. He can also continue to make his footwork more effective playing through balls on the ground. On the mound, he throws strikes and goes after hitters. He has a good athletic presence on the mound. He works down in the zone when his balance, separation and follow through are good, but if he rushes his arm drags and he can become inconsistent. At the plate, he has an athletic stance. Watch out for two much arm bar/too long of a stride. His balance and rhythm are good and he gets his lower half through. When he gets long, it leads to pulling against slower pitchers/being late against harder throwers. He can improve his hitting grades by shortening up. Overall, Brandon is a gamer and a player that you want on your team.
