12/27/2018 - Baseball Factory Winter Classic - Session 2 (Ages 12-14)
Bryce continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities and have a promising future on the diamond. In the OF, defensive abilities have improved as he displays smooth actions. Feet are aggressive as he takes proper routes / angles in tracking down balls. He reads balls well off the bat and works to get behind balls but needs to play through with momentum to his target. Range will increase as he continues to improve foot quickness. Throws are accurate but needs to build more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, he shows a tall setup. Hands are quick and work through an aggressive swing path. He makes consistent contact through a line drive approach with power showing best to the pull side. Mental makeup is a plus as he is very coachable and plays the game hard.
12/08/2018 - Mid-Atlantic Regional Hitting Weekend (Ages 12-14)
Bryce is an athletic and talented prospect that made several adjustments throughout the Mid Atlantic Hitting Weekend. At the plate, Bryce starts in an athletic position, loads his hands back into the drive position, and shows tremendous bat speed. He needs to continue to attack the inside part of the ball, create backside rotation with his lower half, and keep his head down at contact. Bryce will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.
