11/07/2015 - Hitting Accelerated Training Weekend (Ages 14-18) Luke starts with a slightly open set up and works with a stride that lands slightly closed in his launch position. Luke will benefit from being more explosive with his lower half to generate more bat speed and power; right now the hips tend to drift forward a bit which will lead to some loss of that explosion. Luke shows the ability to get the barrel to the ball consistently with a short, compact stroke. He is at his best when he allows the ball to travel into the proper hitting zone and gets extension through impact. A 2018 grad, Luke shows a good approach and through continued hard work he can look to take his game to the next level.
