07/16/2019 - Baseball Factory National World Series at Pirate City - Session 1 (Ages 12-14)
Grant is an athletic and talented 2023 2-way prospect that worked hard all week. At 1B, Grant is on time with his prep step, he fields the ball in front of his body, and creates angles to the ball. He has good hands with a clean exchange, and a quick release. He needs to continue to improve his mobility and improve his first step to the ball. At the plate, Grant starts in a closed stance, he creates rhythm in his hands, and shows the ability to hit the ball to the pull side. He needs to continue to create backside drive with his lower half and keep the barrel inside the ball. On the bump, Grant gathers over the rubber, separates on time, and drives toward the plate. He has a loose arm action and attacks hitters with his fastball. He cuts his fastball, has a loose spin on his breaking ball, and tumbles his changeup. Grant will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.
