12/27/2017 - Baseball Factory Christmas Camp & Tournament at Pirate City - Session 2 (Ages 14-18)
Evan continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities and he is a prospect on the diamond. At 1B, defensive abilities have improved, now showing well above average as he displays smooth / clean actions. Feet are active / aggressive as he attacks balls and plays through with his body. Hands are soft / sure but needs to present more out front. Range will increase as he improves foot quickness. At the plate, he continues to shine through a tall, athletic setup. Hands are quick (87 mph exit velocity) and work through a level swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields with gap-to-gap pop. Mental makeup is a plus as he is very coachable and plays the game hard.
