08/03/2016 - Baseball Factory National World Series at Pirate City - Session 1 Jon Dale is a very coachable, hardworking player who continues to improve. Offensively, he starts with an open/tall setup followed by a good load position with his hands which allows him to crush the ball to the gaps with ease. Keeping his hands inside the baseball throughout his swing will allow him to make more consistent contact to all fields. At 1st base he showed great improvements with his arm (84 mph raw velocity) making strong throws consistently. He displayed solid footwork and a proficiency around the bag, however playing lower on all ground balls will help with consistency of fielding. Showing great raw power and an arm, Jon Dale will certainly catch the eyes of college coaches moving forward.
