11/16/2017 - Baseball Factory Select Training & Competition at Pirate City (Ages 12-14) Jacob is a lean catcher who will graduate in 2023. Behind the plate, feet are aggressive and active as he works in line to his target, through a clean transfer / exchange. Pop times showed in the 2.96 range with accuracy on his throws. Times will continue to drop as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program and he works to get rid of the baseball quicker. Glove action is soft and he sticks in the zone but needs to present a lower target. He utilizes his body well through the blocking process but needs to work to get down quicker. With 6 years to further develop, Jacob has abilities with time and room to progress his game.
