12/08/2018 - Mid-Atlantic Regional Hitting Weekend (Ages 12-14)
James is an intelligent and hardworking 2024 prospect that made several adjustments throughout the Mid Atlantic Hitting Weekend. At the plate, James starts in a crouched stance, loads his hands back into the drive position, and gets his front foot down on time. He attacks the inside part of the ball and creates backside rotation with his lower half. He needs to continue to keep his head down at contact and stay balanced through contact. James will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.
11/03/2018 - Mid-Atlantic Regional Pitching and Catching Weekend (Ages 12-14)
James is an athletic and talented pitching prospect that made several adjustments throughout the Mid Atlantic Regional Pitching and Catching Weekend. On the bump, James throws from a three-quarter arm slot, and shows the ability to cut his fastball. He needs to continue to work on balancing over the rubber, separating on time, and having a controlled landing. This will help him work over the front side and work downhill. Riding the back leg toward the catcher and extending through his release point will allow him to work down in the strike zone. James will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.
