02/24/2018 - Mid Atlantic Regional Accelerated Pitching & Catching Weekend (Ages 12-14)
Jack is a hard-working 2024 LHP prospect that made several adjustments during the pitching and catching accelerated training weekend. On the bump, Jack gathers over the rubber, separates on time, and has a clean arm stroke. He throws downhill and has a strong glove side. Starting with more weight on the back leg to start will allow him to use the lower half to drive to the plate more freely. Picking up his target early will help him be more accurate as well. Jack will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.
09/23/2017 - FDI Hitting Accelerated Training Weekend (12-14)
Jack is a coachable player who worked hard on his skills during his time at the Hitting Accelerated Training Weekend. At the plate, this RHH sets up in an athletic stance and takes a square stride. He produces decent bat speed through the zone which leads to solid contact. Jack can improve as a hitter by working a smoother load into his swing and by maintaining his base throughout his swing. With seven more years to develop, Jack has the time and potential to further progress his skills at the plate.
