07/05/2018 - California Select Training & Competition - Session 1 (Ages 12-14) Cade is an athletic and talented 2-way player. In the OF, Cade has an active prep step and reads the ball off the bat. He plays through the ball and creates momentum in his lower half when he throws. Continuing to work on game like throws in his throwing program will increase his ability to throw from different arm angles. At the plate, Cade starts in a tall stance, keep his barrel on plane with the ball, and has good pitch recognition. Continuing to work on his separation and getting his front foot down on time will allow him to see the ball into the contact zone longer. Being aggressive with the back leg and keeping his head down at contact will allow him to drive the ball through the middle part of the field. On the bump, Cade gathers over the rubber, separates on time, and has a loose arm action. He works north to south and pounds the bottom half of the zone. Continuing to develop a secondary pitch, such as a changeup, will help off set his fastball. Cade is a hard worker and made several adjustments throughout the week. He will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.
