11/16/2017 - Baseball Factory Select Training & Competition at Pirate City (Ages 12-14) Josh continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities. At the plate, hitting / power potential has improved through a squared setup. Hands are loose and work through a level swing path. He makes consistent contact with power showing best to the pull side. Power will increase as he utilizes his lower half more efficiently. Behind the plate, pop times showed in the 3.14 range. Feet are active working in line through a clean transfer / exchange. Times will continue to drop as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program and works to get rid of the baseball quicker. Glove action is soft as he sticks balls well in the zone but needs to present a lower target. He uses his body well through the blocking process but needs to work to get down sooner and improve his lateral movements. Mental makeup is a plus as he is very coachable and works hard to be the best player he can be.
