06/20/2018 - Baseball Factory Select Training at the College World Series (Ages 12-14)
David is a big SS that shows improvement in all aspects of his game since past events. In the field, David shows athleticism with agile range that allow him to make difficult plays. He shows a low fielding position and firm hands as he fields ground balls. David has raw talent and needs to work on his mechanics to be more efficient in the field. After fielding, he makes clean exchanges into a quick arm action from a high 3/4 arm slot. David's raw velocity has increased from 64mph to 69mph since past events he attended. He makes accurate throws to his targets by using his body's momentum at his release, throwing the ball on a line. At the plate, David shows a square set up with a short stride and a good load. His rhythm is smooth as he keeps his balance center and keeps a firm front half with a direct bat path to the ball. Along with raw velocity, David's exit velocity shows improvement, jumping from 71mph to 73mph. David can improve at the plate by syncing his mechanics and becoming more aggressive in his approach and his swings. David is a quiet player and needs to become more vocal on the field along with focusing on improving his mechanics, both offensively and defensively.
02/10/2018 - Mid Atlantic Regional Accelerated Hitting Weekend (Ages 12-14)
David is a hard worker and respectful prospect that made several adjustments during the hitting accelerated training weekend. At the plate, starts in a squared stance and stays balanced through contact. He has a strong lower half and shows pull side pop. Continuing to engage the lower half and attacking the inside part of the ball will allow him to drive the ball through the middle part of the field. Creating rhythm and separation in his body will allow him to be one time and allow his hands to work to the ball. David will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.
