12/27/2019 - Baseball Factory West Coast Winter Classic (Ages 12-14) Makai is a tall and athletic 2-way prospect that made several adjustments over the week. At 1B, Makai works off the bag well when holding runners and he knows how to position himself on the field. He squares the ball up and has proper footwork when throwing. He needs to continue be on time with his prep step and improve his first step quickness to improve range. At the plate, Makai starts in a tall stance, he has a simple load, and has impressive bat speed. He needs to continue to get to a balanced position and attack the inside part of the ball to improve his ability to drive the ball. On the bump, Makai has confidence in his fastball and finds a consistent balance point. He rides his backside down hill and has a full finish. Makai is a hard worker and we hope to see his progress in the future.
