07/12/2014 - Cape Cod Select Training & Competition - Session 1 Jacob is a solid 3B that will graduate in 2014. At the plate is where he shows best through a squared setup with rhythm. Hands are quick and work to and through a level swing path, creating extension. He has strength in his swing and shows a feel for the barrel with baseball jumping off the bat when centered. At 3B, feet are active as he displays proper footwork as he works to square ground balls up, displaying clean hands as he makes the routine plays. For defensive grade to continue to improve, he needs to attack balls more while presenting hands more out front, and increase foot quickness. Throws are accurate but will benefit by building 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. Jacob has potential and will catch the eyes of the collegiate coaches with his baseball abilities as he continues to improve.
