07/27/2018 - Baseball Factory National World Series at Pirate City - Session 1 (Ages 14-18)
Chase continues to show steady progress in his baseball abilities. In the OF, he displays smooth / fluid actions. Range is a plus as reads balls well off the bat and covers a lot of ground. He works to get behind balls but needs to play through with momentum to his target. Hands / feet work well together as he gets rid of the baseball quickly with accuracy but will benefit by building more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, he shows an open / athletic setup. Hands are quick (81 mph exit velocity) and work through an aggressive swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach. Mental makeup is a plus as he has a great personality, is very coachable, and plays the game hard.
