12/27/2018 - Baseball Factory Winter Classic - Session 2 (Ages 12-14)
Ethan 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. At SS, defensive abilities have improved as he displays smooth / fluid actions. Feet are active as he works to square balls up and plays through with his body. Glove action is soft / clean but will benefit by presenting more out front. Range will increase as he continues to improve foot quickness. At the plate, he shows tall, narrow setup. Hands are loose and work through a level swing path. He works to keep hands inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach. Power will increase as he utilizes his lower half more efficiently. Mental makeup is a plus as he is very coachable and plays the game hard.
