01/17/2020 - Baseball Factory's Spring Training at Pirate City (Ages 12-14) Ichiro is a lean OF who will graduate in 2024. In the OF, he utilizes his athletic feet well in tracking down balls through proper routes / angles. He works to get behind balls, playing through well with momentum to his target. Range will increase as he improves foot quickness. Throws are accurate but he needs to build more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate he shows a squared setup and aggressive approach. Hands are quick and work through level swing path. He makes consistent contact through a line drive approach with power showing best to the pull side. Power will continue to increase as he utilizes his lower half more efficiently. With 3 years to further develop, Ichiro has potential with time and room to continue to progress his game.
