08/05/2019 - Baseball Factory Pro Select Training & Tournament at Pirate City (Ages 14-18) Gabriel is an athletic and lean 2021 catching prospect that battled through a shoulder injury throughout the week. Behind the dish, Gabriel has a quiet primary stance and tries to work behind the ball. He needs to track the ball into his glove and minimize post pitch manipulation. When throwing, he replaces his feet. Continuing to gain ground will improve his direction and accuracy. When blocking, Gabriel needs to focus on anticipating balls in the dirt, lead with his glove, and keep a “nothing gets by me mentality”. At the plate, Gabriel starts in a squared stance and looks to make contact to the pull side. He activates his hands back and gets to balance at contact. Gabriel was eager to learn and we hope to see his progress in the future.
