12/27/2019 - Baseball Factory West Coast Winter Classic (Ages 12-14) Kaipo is an athletic and talented 2-way prospect that was eager to learn. Behind the dish, Kaipo starts in an athletic primary stance, he presents a low/early glove, and works behind the ball. When blocking he leads with his glove, he creates a good angle over the ball, and has good lateral mobility. When throwing, Kaipo has a strong arm and good throwing mechanics. At the plate, Kaipo starts in an athletic and crouched stance. He loads his hands back, he attacks the inside part of the ball, and looks to hit the ball gap to gap. He needs to continue to rotate his backside and keep his head down at contact. On the bump, Kaipo has good mound presence, he finds a balance point, and separates on time. He needs to continue to ride his back leg down hill and finish over the front side. Kaipo will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.

Tool Grade Scale

Our main goals with the BF "10-70" Scouting Scale are to provide the player with a realistic evaluation of his "PRESENT" abilities (what he can do today), and to provide college coaches with information they can use to identify and/or compare potential recruits.

Tools are graded for all players and pitchers, regardless of age or graduation year. However, for High School players we use only grades 20-70 (grades 10-18 do not apply), while for Middle School players we use only grades 10-52 (grades 55-70 do not apply).
