07/31/2019 - Baseball Factory National World Series at Pirate City - Session 2 (Ages 14-18) Charlie is an athletic and talented 2021 Catching prospect that has a high baseball IQ. Behind the dish, Charlie is a leader and controls the running game well. When throwing he has a clean exchange, he replaces his feet, and makes strong throws. He needs to continue to find his arm slot and gain ground in his footwork. When receiving, Charlie presents a low target, he has a quiet head, and works behind the ball. When blocking, he leads with his glove, anticipates the ball in the dirt, and controls the ball with a soft chest. At the plate, Charlie loads his hands back into the drive position, he has a soft stride, and gets to balance with his lower half at contact. He has a strong barrel and looks to make contact to all fields. He needs to continue to hunt the fastball early and create backside drive with his lower half. Charlie plays the game hard and we hope to see his progress in the future.
