11/08/2018 - Baseball Factory Select Training & Competition in Arizona (Ages 14-18)
Ethan continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities. At the plate, hitting / power potential has improved through a tall setup. Hands are loose and work through an aggressive swing path. He makes consistent contact and stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a long drive approach. At SS, defensive abilities have improved as he displays smooth / fluid actions. Feet are active / aggressive as he takes good first steps in attacking the baseball but needs to play through more with his body. Glove action is soft / clean but needs to present more out front. He shows off his athletic abilities on his feeds / turn of the double play. Range will increase as he improves foot quickness. Throws are accurate, flashing carry across the diamond but will benefit by building more arm strength through a long toss program.
08/02/2018 - Baseball Factory Pro Select Training at Historic Dodgertown (Ages 12-14)
Ethan is an athletic and talented 2022 SS prospect that worked hard and made several adjustments throughout the week at Vero Beach. At SS, Etahn presents a low/early glove, hes aggressive to the ball, and has good footwork on double plays. He needs to continue to be on time with his prep step, anticipate the ball off the bat, and field the ball in an athletic position. Continuing to practice game like throws in his throwing program will increase his ability to throw from multiple arm angles and on the run. At the plate, Ethan starts in a squared stance, creates backside rotation, and stays balanced thru contact. He needs to continue to attack the inside part of the ball, keep his head down at contact, and hunt the fastball. Ethan is a high energy player and will continue to improve with experieince. We hope to see his progress in the future.
