07/20/2014 - California Select Training & Competition (Ages 12-14)
Joseph is a 2018 graduate who plays 3B. As a third baseman Joseph tries to play through, was accurate to target and showed pretty good footwork. He can improve by putting himself in a more athletic pre-pitch position, getting hands out front more and long tossing for arm strength. At the plate Joseph displayed a line drive approach and good/consistent contact but needs to let the ball travel into the proper hitting zone, keep balance centered and level swing path.
