12/27/2019 - Baseball Factory West Coast Winter Classic (Ages 12-14)
Dominic is an athletic 2-wayswitch hitting prospect that worked hard and was very coachable. From both sides of the plate, Dominic takes aggressive swing, he has a level bat path, and looks to drive the ball to the middle part of the field. From the right side, he starts in an athletic stance, he loads his hands back, and hits off a firm front side. From the left side of the plate, he starts in an open stance, he makes consistent hard contact, and he rotates his backside well. At SS, Dominic is on time with his prep step, he works from the ground up, and makes the routine play. He needs to continue to field the ball in front of his body to have a clean exchange, and have proper footwork when throwing. On the bump, Dominic shows confidence in his fastball, he throws strikes, and pitches to contact. He needs to continue to find a balance point and ride his back leg down hill. Dominic will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.
