01/18/2019 - 2019 Baseball Factory All-America Pre-Season Rookie Tournament
Dakota is an athletic and talented 2022 OF prospect with energy. In the OF, Dakota has active pre-pitch movement, a quick first step to the ball, and works behind the ball. He fields the ball in front of his body, has a clean exchange, and makes accurate throws. At the plate, Dakota starts in a squared stance and has his hands in a comfortable position. He's short to the ball, rotates his hip to the ball, and makes consistent contact. Dakota was eager to learn and we hope to see his progress in the future.

Dakota is a 2022 OF with solid skills. Defensively, Dakota has fluid footwork, soft/presentable hands, and he fields in an athletic position. He reads the ball off the bat well, his exchange is quick and clean, and he throws with accuracy and consistency to his target from a loose arm action. Defense can improve if Dakota can quicken his release and add arm strength. Offensively, Dakota has a square setup, he loads well, and swings in good rhythm. He is selective at the plate, swings on-plane, and can work the ball gap to gap. A more square stride, better balance, and more finish will help hitting get even better.
