07/05/2019 - California Select Training & Competition - Session 1 (Ages 12-14) Ethan showed great body language in the field and on the mound. At 2B Ethan showed quick footwork with a plus 1st step to the ball fielding with 2-hands. He works to get rid of the ball quickly with a short, quick arm action and makes accurate throws around the infield. Ethan showed a simple approach at the plate with low hands and a small load. His rhythm and timing are controlled and on time that allows him to have good barrel control. On the mound, Ethan showed the ability to command his FB at a high rate. He works out of the stretch separating on time and rotates getting his chest over his knee finishing his rotation. Ethan is a young prospect that has time to grow.

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 (tools), 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, using the scale below. However, grades 10-18 are not available for use with High School players (ages 14-18), while grades 55-70 are not available for use with Pre High School players (ages 12-14). These instances are marked as "--- N/A ---" in the "Description" fields below.
