06/16/2018 - Omaha National World Series - Session 1 (Ages 14-18) Jacob continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities. Foot speed has improved as he ran his best 60 time to date, now a 6.87 runner. In the OF, he utilizes his quick feet in covering a lot of ground and makes the routine plays. He shows good game awareness and does a nice job of backing up bases. At the plate, he continues to show as a switch hitter with similar abilities from both sides. Hands are quick and work through a level swing path. He makes consistent contact through a line drive approach. On the mound, fastball showed a range of 72-74 mph with arm side run. Breaking ball displays 1/7 shape with gradual break. He maintains arm speed on his changeup with sinking action. Control is outstanding as he attacks hitters and throws strikes with all his pitches. Getting on a long toss program will help increase arm strength which will aid in his development on the mound. Mental makeup is a plus as he has a positive attitude, works hard, and is very coachable. We look forward to seeing what the future holds for Jacob.
