12/27/2018 - Baseball Factory Christmas Camp & Tournament at Pirate City - Session 2 (Ages 14-18) Jakob is a strong, athletic player who continues to improve his tools. He has strengthened his arm, going from 75mph raw velo to 77mph and hits the ball much harder now (88mph exit velo vs 77mph). He shows an athletic secondary setup behind the plate and move agilely to receive with presented hands. He blocks well and has quick actions to throw, gaining momentum to his target. At the plate, he shows good balance and timing to load and swing, covering the entire strike zone. His bat is fast through the zone on a compact path to show pop, especially to the pull side. Getting ready with his load earlier will allow him to handle higher velocity. Jakob is a player we expect to have a successful senior season.
