07/16/2019 - Baseball Factory National World Series at Pirate City - Session 1 (Ages 12-14) Giancarlo is an athletic and talented 2024 2-way prospect that worked hard all week. At SS, Giancarlo is on time with his prep step, he presents a low/early glove, and has a strong arm across the diamond. He fields the ball in an in a proper fielding position, he plays through the ball, and has good turns on double plays. He needs to continue to know where to position himself on the field, learn position depths, and where to be on cut offs. At the plate, Giancarlo has a narrow stance, quiet hands, and has a smooth load. He looks to hit the ball to all fields and showed it by going 4 for 8 with a BB, a 3B to LF, 2 base hits to CF, and a 2B to RF. He makes consistent contact but needs to get his lower half to balance, create backside drive, and keep the barrel inside the ball. On the bump, Giancarlo has confidence in his pitches and looks to pound the bottom of the strike zone. He gathers over the rubber, separates on time, and has a clean arm stroke. He needs to continue to find a balance point, works downhill in his delivery, and finish over the front side. Giancarlo has tremendous upside and we hope to see his progress in the future.
