08/01/2018 - Baseball Factory National World Series at Pirate City - Session 2 (Ages 14-18)
Braxton is an athletic and talented 2020 OF prospect that made several adjustments throughout the week at Pirate City. In the OF, Braxton takes efficient routes to the ball and makes accurate throws to the bases. He needs to continue to be on time with his prep step, anticipate balls off the bat, and improve his first step quickness. Continuing to practice game like throws in his throwing program will increase his ability to throw from multiple arm angles and on the run. At the plate, Braxton starts in an athletic stance, loads his hands back, and hits off a firm front side. He needs to continue to load his hands back into the drive position, attack the inside part of the ball, and hunt the fastball. Braxton will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.
