08/10/2020 - National Evaluation and Tryout - Frederick, MD Charlie continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities. He did show in the OF for the first time at the event. Foot speed has improved as he ran his best 60 time to date. At the plate is where he shows best through a tall, open setup. He has fluid rhythm while getting good hand separation. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach. Defensively at 1B, he shows active prep with fluid actions. He works around the GB and through it as he gains ground toward his target. Footwork around the bag is solid and he is a quality receiver. In the OF, he takes proper routes/angles in tracking down balls. He needs to work to get behind balls more to play through with momentum to his target. Throws are accurate but will benefit by building more arm strength through a long toss program. We look forward to seeing what the future holds for Charlie as he enters his 8th grade year.
