07/17/2018 - Baseball Factory National World Series at Pirate City - Session 1 (Ages 12-14) Justin is a lean, athletic catcher who has a promising future on the diamond. Behind the plate, feet are aggressive and active as he works in line to his target, through a clean transfer / exchange as he gets rid of the baseball quickly. Pop times show in the range of 2.16-2.22 with accuracy on his throws. Times will continue to drop as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program and he works to get rid of the baseball quicker. Glove action is soft and he sticks in the zone. He utilizes his body well through the blocking process but needs to work to get down quicker. At the plate, he shows a squared setup. Hands are quick and work through a level swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields with gap-to-gap pop. At the event, he has a tremendous week as he was 5 for 6. Mental makeup is a plus as he is very coachable and works hard to be the best player he can be. With 4 years to further develop, Justin has the makings of a special type player with time and room to progress his game.
