12/20/2017 - Baseball Factory Christmas Camp & Tournament at Pirate City - Session 1 (Ages 14-18) James continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities and has a promising future on the diamond. At the plate, hitting abilities have improved through an athletic setup. Hands are quick and work through a level swing path. He stays inside the ball utilizing all fields through a line drive approach. Behind the plate, pop times have improved as he threw his lowest time to date at 2.15 with accuracy on his throws. Feet are active working in line through a clean transfer/exchange as he gets rid of the baseball quickly. Times will continue to drop as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. Glove action is soft as he sticks balls well in the zone. He uses his body well through the blocking process and is a wall behind dish. Improving secondary stance will aid in improving receiving/blocking abilities. Mental makeup is a plus as he is very coachable and works hard to be the best player he can be.
