At the plate, Koby stays balanced, has an athletic setup and swings aggressively. His soft hands and good bat/barrel control mixed with his ongoing improvement staying through contact and extending will help him to grow as a hitter. Koby sets an example for teammates through his demeanor and hard working approach.
08/31/2013 - Hitting Accelerated Training Weekend (Ages 12-14)
Koby is an athletic player, with potential as he grows. He shows the ability to hit to all fields, and control the barrel well, he is able to do this, due to him having great hands as a hitter. He stays inside the baseball very well with the hands and the barrel, this is the reason he is able to hit to all fields well. Somethings that Koby needs to focus on to become a complete hitter, is the ability to connect the entire body during the swing, and also firing the back side to the baseball. Koby tends to let his hands lead his swing, and with his size he is unable to get a lot of power into the baseball, by using the entire body he will be able to get more power into the baseball. He needs to let the back side fire, and then let the hands take over in the swing.
