11/11/2021 - Baseball Factory Fall Select Tournament at Pirate City
Jack continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities at the Pirate City event. At the plate, hitting / power potential has improved through an athletic setup. Hands are quick and work through a level swing. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach. Lower half works well through the swing and shows a feel for the barrel. At 1B, he displays proper footwork around the bag and is a quality receiver. Hands are clean and presents well out front. He moves well laterally with range improving as he increases foot quickness. On the mound, he works to a controlled balance point, has smooth separation and fires from a clean/loose arm action. Fastball shows a range of 67-68 mph with tailing action. Breaking ball displays 11/5 shape with gradual break. He maintains arm speed on his changeup with slight sink. Control is well above average as he throws strikes with both his pitches. Stock on the mound will continue to improve as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. Mental makeup is a plus as he has a positive attitude, works hard, and is very coachable.
