12/18/2010 - Christmas Camp and Tournament 2010 - Session 1 Chris is a young, thick Catcher who will graduate in 2012. Defensively, Chris is currently an average blocker and receiver, and he looks the ball in. He gives good effort when blocking and can throw with a short arm action and good accuracy to his target. Abilities behind the plate can improve with a better base, work on blocking and receiving, and adding arm strength. Offensively, Chris puts the ball in play and shows good strike zone knowledge. He has decent balance, okay bat speed, and he has some pop in his bat. Chris will need to get his front foot down sooner, loosen his grip, and add physical strength in order to improve offensive numbers.
