07/23/2017 - Baseball Factory National World Series at Pirate City - Session 2 (Ages 12-14) Eli is a strong, athletic RHP/3B who has a tremendous future on the diamond. At the plate is where he shows best through a closed setup. Hands are quick and work through a compact swing path. He works to stay inside the ball, utilizing the whole field. He has strength in his swing with baseball jumping off the bat when centered. At 3B, feet are active / aggressive as he attacks balls but needs to play through more with his body. Glove action is soft / clean but will benefit by presenting more out front. Hands / feet work well together through the fielding process. Range will increase as he improves foot quickness. On the mound, fastball shows a range of 69-71 mph. Breaking ball displays 10/4 shape with gradual break. Stock on the mound will continue to improve as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. Mental makeup is a plus as he is very coachable and plays the game hard. With 5 years to further develop, Eli has the makings of a special type player with time and room to progress his game.
