01/14/2022 - Baseball Factory's Spring Training at Jackie Robinson Training Complex(Ages 12-14)
Liam is a smart ballplayer who plays 2B/RHP in the class of 2027 out of Fairview, TX. At 2B, he has efficient footwork by taking good angles to the baseball and fielding the ball out front in a low fielding position. He works through the baseball with a quick exchange and short arm action while making accurate throws/feeds to his target. At the plate, he showed a simple approach/swing by keeping his head and eyes quiet to make consistent contact with a level on plane swing. His bat path enabled him to make solid line drive contact. On the hill, he showed solid mechanics by separating on time and striding in line to his target. His delivery was repeatable which enabled him to throw strikes with his 2 pitches. His fastball topped out at 58 mph while his breaking ball had 10/4 action with gradual break. Liam could benefit from programs/drills such as bands, strength training, towel drills, long toss, speed & agility. We look forward to seeing what the future holds as Liam enters his 7th grade baseball season.
