07/27/2018 - Baseball Factory National World Series at Pirate City - Session 1 (Ages 14-18) Eli continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities and has a promising future on the diamond. Foot speed has improved as he ran his best 60 time to date, now a 7.06 runner. In the OF, defensive abilities are well above average as he displays smooth / fluid actions. Range is a plus as reads balls well off the bat and covers a lot of ground. He works to get behind balls and plays through with momentum to his target. Hands / feet work well together as he gets rid of the baseball quickly with accuracy and zip to his target. At the plate, he continues to shine as he has improved his hitting abilities through an open setup. Hands are quick (80 mph exit velocity) and work through an aggressive swing path. He has strength in his swing and shows a feel for the barrel with gap-to-gap pop. At the event, he was 3 for 6. Mental makeup is a plus as he has a great personality, is very coachable, and plays the game hard.
