On the mound, fastball showed a range of 76-78 mph with arm side run. Breaking ball displays 10/4 shape with gradual break.

11/16/2017 - Baseball Factory Select Training & Competition at Pirate City (Ages 12-14) Elijah is an athletic 2023 SS/RHP prospect. Elijah is a competitor and made several adjustments over the weekend at Pirate City. At SS, Elijah has active pre pitch movement, plays through the backhand and makes accurate throws across the diamond. Working from the ground up and following thru on his DP flips will elevate his infield play. At the plate, Elijah has an athletic stance and takes aggressive hacks. He gets his front foot down on time and makes consistent hard contact. Allowing the ball to travel into the hitting zone and keeping his head down at contact will help him balanced through contact longer. On the bump, Elijah gathers over the rubber, separates on time, and is aggressive in the strike zone. Using his backside to drive off the rubber will create more velocity on the FB and keep him directional toward the plate. Elijah will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.

Tool Grade Scale

Our main goals with the BF "10-70" Scouting Scale are to provide the player with a realistic evaluation of his "PRESENT" abilities (what he can do today), and to provide college coaches with information they can use to identify and/or compare potential recruits.

Tools are graded for all players and pitchers, regardless of age or graduation year. However, for High School players we use only grades 20-70 (grades 10-18 do not apply), while for Middle School players we use only grades 10-52 (grades 55-70 do not apply).
