08/06/2012 - Baseball Factory National World Series at Pirate City - Session 2 Brandon showed well during his time in Pirate City and improved in a couple of areas (his arm and hitting). Behind the plate, Brandon has a good set-up, he reads the ball off the bat well, and he makes plays. He has a clean exchange, and throws with a short / loose arm with accuracy to his target. He can work on getting down to block the ball sooner as well as strengthening his wrists. At the plate, Brandon has good hands, he stays inside the ball, and he keeps his front side closed. He has good barrel accuracy and works the middle of the field. He needs to remember to let the ball travel and he can loosen up his grip somewhat. He really plays hard and is a great kid who wants to be great. With two years of high school baseball remaining, he has time and the desire to improve. He will make a good addition to a college program in a couple of years.
