01/18/2019 - 2019 Baseball Factory All-America Pre-Season Rookie Tournament
Collin continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities and has a promising future on the diamond. Foot speed has improved as he ran his best 60 time to date, now a well above average runner at 7.10. In the OF, he displays fluid / athletic actions. Feet are aggressive as he takes proper routes / angles in tracking down balls. He works to get behind balls and plays through with momentum to his target. Range is a plus as he moves well laterally and covers a lot of ground. Throws are accurate but needs to build more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, power potential has improved through an open setup. Hands are quick and work through a level swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach. At the event, he was 2 for 5 with a 2B.
07/17/2018 - Baseball Factory National World Series at Pirate City - Session 1 (Ages 12-14)
Collin is an athletic and strong bodied 2022 OF prospect that made several adjustments throughout the week at Pirate City. In the OF, Collin is on time with his pre-pitch movement, reads the ball off the bat, and is aggressive on ground balls. He shows good baseball instincts backing up the bases and throwing the ball to the correct bases. He needs to continue to improve his first step quickness with an agility program and following a long toss program to improve arm strength. At the plate, Collin starts in an athletic stance and shows pull side power when he makes contact. Loading his hands into the drive position and creating back hip rotation into the ball will allow him to get the barrel to the ball. Overall, Collin needs to continue getting a high volume of reps and in game experience. He's a hard worker and we hope to see his progress in the future.
