12/27/2018 - Under Armour Baseball Factory Recruiting Classic (Ages 14-18) Kolby is an athletic and strong 2019 Catching prospect that was eager to learn. Behind the dish, Kolby creates momentum in his lower half and has a strong arm. He needs to continue to have a clean exchange and a quick release when throwing. Being in a balanced primary position will allow him to present a lower target and work behind the ball. When blocking he needs to lead with his glove and try to control the ball with his chest. Improving hip mobility will allow to block laterally more consistently. At the plate, Kolby starts in a squared stance, creates rhythm in his hands, and gets his front foot down on time. He has a compact swing but needs to continue to create more hip rotation in order to drive the ball to all fields. Kolby will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.
