10/21/2017 - FDI Hitting Accelerated Training Weekend (14-18) Ian is a very coachable player that worked hard on his skills during the Hitting Accelerated Training Weekend. At the plate, Ian has an athletic and balanced stance. He hits off a firm front side, gets the barrel to the ball and showed good bat speed. As a hitter Ian can improve his skill set by loading his hands into a strong position, consistently attacking the inside part of the ball, and getting extension through contact. Keeping his weight on the inside back part of his leg while loading will allow him to use more of his lower half and create more power in his swing. Ian makes consistent contact and will continue to improve with experience. We hope to see his improvement in the future.
