11/15/2018 - Baseball Factory Select Training & Competition at Pirate City (Ages 12-14) Collin is an athletic and hard-working 2023 catching prospect that was eager to learn. Behind the dish, Collin starts in a balanced primary and has a staggered secondary stance. He works behind the ball and controls balls in the strike zone when receiving. He has a clean exchange in front of his body, a quick release, and creates momentum in his lower half when throwing to the bases. He needs to continue to lead with his glove, and be on time when blocking. Improving hip mobility and anticipating balls in the dirt will improve his ability to move laterally to block. Collin has the ability to hit from both sides of the plate. On both sides he starts in an athletic stance, gets his front foot down on time, and stays balanced through contact. He hits off a firm front side and keeps the barrel on plane. From the left side he needs to continue to attack the inside part of the ball and keep his head down at contact. From the right side he needs to continue to create backside rotation and keep a middle approach. Collin enjoys the game of baseball and will continue to improve with experience.
