08/02/2017 - Baseball Factory National World Series at Pirate City - Session 2 (Ages 14-18) Macklin is a lean, athletic SS who has a promising future on the diamond. At the plate is where he shows best through an athletic / crouched setup. Hands are quick and work through a compact swing path. He works to stay inside the ball, utilizing the whole field through a line drive approach. At SS, he displays smooth / fluid actions. Feet are active / aggressive as he takes good first steps in attacking the baseball. Glove action is soft / clean but needs to present more out front. He shows off his athletic abilities on his feeds / turns of the double play. Range is a plus as he moves well laterally. Throws are accurate with carry across the diamond. Mental makeup is a plus as he is very coachable and plays the game hard. With 2 years to further develop, Macklin has potential with time and room to progress his game.
