02/29/2020 - Baseball Factory Mid-Atlantic Combined Skills Training - Columbia, MD (Ages 12-14)
Colin is an exciting young prospect - only a 2028 grad. He performed well at the Mid-Atlantic Skills Training showing off a solid LH stroke that featured balance and bat speed. His simple approach had him finding the barrel throughout the weekend. He hit line drives consistently using a short stroke. Behind the plate Colin was athletic and instinctual. His footwork on throws to 2B was very good as well. He will benefit from giving a lower target and being able to better stick pitches where he receives them. Overall, Colin has a great profile as a LHH catcher and his strong work ethic combined with his skills look like he is headed for a bright future.
