07/26/2013 - Baseball Factory National World Series at Pirate City Joshua was very impressive at Pirate City both in the field and at the plate. Despite being one of the younger kids he more than held his own. He has well above average arm strength for his size, baseball IQ is very high, mechanics are sound and hands are good. Joshua needs to take better angles to the ball and long toss for arm strength. At the plate Joshua was particularly impressive. He displayed a good load, timing, lower half and his swing path is on-plane/consistent. As Joshua matures physically the power will come but in the meantime he needs to be more aggressive and be smoother with the overall approach.
