07/26/2019 - Baseball Factory National World Series at Pirate City - Session 1 (Ages 14-18) Elijah is an athletic and strong 2021 Catching prospect that made solid adjustments this week. Behind the dish Elijah made significant improvement on his receiving skills. He starts in a quiet primary stance, he presents a low target, and works behind the ball. When throwing he replaces his feet, he has a quick release, and makes accurate throws. Gaining ground and creating momentum with his lower half will improve his throwing efficiency. When blocking he needs to continue to anticipate balls in the dirt and be on time to block. Improving hip mobility will improve his lateral ability to block. At the plate, Elijah starts in a tall stance and has a simple load. He has good rhythm in his load, he hunts the fastball, and swings hard. He needs to be more consistent getting to balance at contact and creating backside rotation with his lower half. Elijah is a hard worker and we hope to see his progress in the future.
