06/23/2018 - Omaha National World Series - Session 2 (Ages 14-18)
Keith is a thin and athletic 2021 middle INF prospect. On the INF, Keith has an active prep step and reads the ball off the bat well. He creates angles, funnels the ball into his body, and has a clean exchange. Continuing to throw from multiple arm slots and following a long toss program will increase his arm strength across the diamond. At the plate, Keith starts in an open stance and loads his hands back into the drive position. He gets his back side through his swing, he attacks the inside part of the ball, and stays balanced at contact. Keith is a hard worker, he's eager to learn and has a team first mindset. Keith will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.
