10/13/2018 - Mid-Atlantic Regional Hitting Weekend (Ages 12-14) Jacob is a hard-working prospect that is coachable and made several adjustments during the Mid-Atlantic Hitting Camp. At the plate, Jacob starts in a closed stance, has a soft to hard focus on the pitcher, and keeps a quiet head. He sees the ball deep into the contact zone and shows the ability to hit the ball to the opposite side of the field. He needs to continue to load his hands back into the drive position, get his front foot down on time, and create rhythm in his hands pre pitch. Attacking the inside part of the ball and creating backside rotation with his lower half will allow him to drive the ball gap to gap consistently. Jacob is eager to learn and will continue to improve with experience.
