11/16/2017 - Baseball Factory Select Training & Competition at Pirate City (Ages 12-14) Gage is a solid, strong catcher who will graduate in 2023. At the plate is where he shows best through an athletic / open setup. Hands are loose and work through an aggressive approach. He works to stay inside the ball, utilizing all fields. Barrel accuracy is a plus and he has strength in his swing with gap-to-gap pop. Behind the plate, feet are aggressive and active as he works in line to his target, through a clean transfer / exchange. Pop times showed in the 2.62 range with accuracy on his throws. Times will continue to drop as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program and he works to get rid of the baseball quicker. Glove action is soft and he sticks in the zone but needs to present a lower target. He utilizes his body well through the blocking process but needs to work to get down quicker. With 6 years to further develop, Gage has abilities with time and room to progress his game.
