06/18/2021 - Baseball Factory All-State Tournament (HS) John continues to show a bright future on the diamond. At the plate, he shows a tall setup. Hands are quick (87 mph exit velocity) and work through level swing path. He makes consistent hard contact and stays inside the ball through a line drive approach with gap to gap pop. Behind the plate, feet are active as he works in line through a clean transfer / exchange. Pop times showed in the 2.20 with accuracy / carry (89 mph velocity) on his throws. Times will continue to drop as he works to get rid of the baseball quicker. He shows a squared setup and presents a soft mitt out front and utilizes his body through the blocking process, centering balls well out front.
