06/16/2019 - Omaha National World Series - Session 1 (Ages 14-18) Holden continues to shine on the diamond both offensively and defensively. Behind the plate, pop times showed in the 2.30 range with accuracy on his throws. Times will continue to drop as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program and works to get rid of the baseball quicker. Hands are soft / sure and he sticks balls in the zone. He utilizes his body well through the blocking process, centering balls well out front. Receiving / blockings skills show as quality tools that will play well at the next level. At the plate, he shows a squared setup. Hands are quick and work to and through an aggressive swing path. He has strength in his swing and shows a feel for the barrel with power showing best to the pull side. At the event, he was 4 for 5 with 3 BB and 2 HBP as he displays a solid eye and patient approach. Mental makeup is coachable and plays the game hard.
