01/17/2014 - Under Armour Pre-Season All-America Tournament Connell shows plus abilities and a strong arm behind the dish. Players like this are in high demand at the next level. This backstop sits in well with good flexion. He has good pocket awareness and frames the ball well. Boyle is quick with his footwork and the transfer is clean, getting the ball to 2B in 1.92. Offensively, Connell remains compact and stays connected well. He yanks the ball on the inner 1/2 and shows some pull-side pop. A talented player (only a junior) will turn some heads over the next couple of years.
