07/23/2020 - Baseball Factory National World Series at Pirate City - Session 2 (Ages 12-14) Dakota is a coachable SS/RHP prospect who worked hard on his skills during the National World Series at Pirate City. In the field, Dakota shows quick footwork and is agile moving to the ball. He fields the ball out in front of his body and makes a quick exchange. He gains ground well on his throws, keeping them accurate with carry through his target. Getting into a lower fielding position can help Dakota improve defensively. At the plate, this RHH sets up in a tall stance and takes aggressive hacks, leading to strong line drives. Dakota can improve as a hitter by taking a shorter stride. On the mound, Dakota works with a loose arm and extends through his release. He stays inline toward the plate and finishes with a controlled landing. Dakota shows a three pitch mix with his fastball topping out at 75mph with sinking action. Breaking ball sits from 64-65mph with 10-4 break. Changeup sits at 66mph with sinking action as he throws with deceptive arm speed. Being more controlled gathering to a balance point can help Dakota improve as a pitcher. With four more years to develop, Dakota has the time and potential to further progress his skills on the field.
