12/27/2016 - Baseball Factory Christmas Camp & Tournament at Pirate City - Session 2 Hayden is a very polite and intelligent young player, who showcased his skills at 2nd base in his time in Pirate City. Defensively, he read the ball off the bat quickly and worked to each ball with quick and fluid feet. Range to both his glove hand and backhand side were impressive, as was his accurate arm, which plays well for the position. Offensively, he sprayed the ball to all fields through an athletic setup, and showed very good plate discipline in each of his at-bats. Hands were loaded on time, quick, and worked directly to the baseball. Continuing to work on keeping his weight back, and exploding his back hip to the pitcher after contact, will help with power to all fields. Overall, Hayden is a gamer who shows great passion for the game and a true knowledge of how to play. With continued hard work, he will be on the radar of collegiate coaches in the near future.
