11/15/2018 - Baseball Factory Select Training & Competition at Pirate City (Ages 12-14)
Colby is a coachable 1B/OF prospect who worked hard on his skills during his time at the Select Training & Competition at Pirate City. In the field, Colby makes the routine plays and keeps his throws accurate and on-line to his target. Getting into a lower fielding position can help Colby improve defensively. At the plate, this RHH sets up in an open stance and hits from a strong front side. He works to barrel up the baseball and makes solid contact. Colby can improve as a hitter by working a smoother load into his swing. With five more years to develop, Colby has the time and potential to further progress his skills on the field.
