07/18/2020 - Baseball Factory National World Series at Pirate City - Session 1 (Ages 12-14) James is a solid, athletic 3B/RHP who has a promising future on the diamond. At 3B, he displays clean/smooth actions. Feet are active as he displays proper footwork as he works to square ground balls up. Glove action is clean and presents well out front. Range is a plus as he moves well laterally and covers ground. At the plate he shows a closed setup. Hands are quick and work through a level swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach. On the mound, fastball showed a range of 73-75 mph with tailing action. Breaking ball displays 10/4 shape with tight spin and gradual break. Control is solid as he throws strikes with all his pitches. Getting on a long toss program to develop more arm strength will aid in improving abilities on the mound. Mental makeup is a plus as he has a positive attitude, works hard, and is very coachable. With 4 years to further develop, James has a lot of potential with time and room to continue to progress his game.
