08/14/2016 - College PREP - Kapolei (Honolulu), HI Kala is a C/2B who will graduate in 2019. This talented right handed throwing backstop shows athleticism behind the plate and has smooth actions to 2B with active footwork and a pop time low of 2.00 with on-line accuracy. Confident actions allow for Kala to center and smother balls in dirt. Early pre pitch set up allows for soft hands and good pocket awareness. At second base, Kala is fluid with footwork and stays square in his fielding position with good glove extension. Clean glove to hand exchange allows for a quick release and accurate arm. In the box, Kala shows a loose quiet rhythm keeping weight distributed properly in an athletic square set up. Repeats a direct path with good balance, keeps eyes and head behind ball with ability to square up the ball on a consistent basis. Overall, this young talented dual position athlete has good upside and will be a nice player to follow in the next three full seasons.
