07/27/2018 - Baseball Factory National World Series at Pirate City - Session 1 (Ages 14-18) James is an athletic and talented 2019 2-way prospect that made several adjustments throughout the week at Pirate City. At SS, James is on time with his prep step, presents a low/early glove, and creates angles to the ball. He anticipates the ball off the bat and works from the ground up. Continuing to practice game like throws in his throwing program will increase his ability to throw from multiple arm angles and on the run. At the plate, James starts in an open stance, loads his hands back into the drive position, and hits off a firm front side. He's aggressive on fastballs and keeps a simple approach. He needs to continue to attack the inside part of the ball and stay balanced through contact. On the bump, James gathers over the rubber, separates on time, and extends thru his delivery. He needs have some action on the fastball and create run on his changeup. He works fast and throws hitters off balance. James will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.
