07/06/2020 - Official College Recruiting Membership - New Britain (Hartford), CT James is a L/R SS who graduates in 2024. With the bat, this LHH shows a tall/square setup with centered balance and smooth rhythm to load. He gets his hands back into a strong load/launch position, whips the barrel on-plane and hits hard line-drives back up the middle of the field. At SS, he has active prep footwork and is aggressive to come and get the ball. He works right to left, funnels smoothly and has a clean transfer to throw. DP feeds/turns are efficient with quick footwork around the bag. James has upside with still a ton of time to progress and physically mature (get stronger).
