07/16/2019 - Baseball Factory National World Series at Pirate City - Session 1 (Ages 12-14) Mason continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities and has a promising future on the diamond. At the plate is where he shows best through a squared setup. Hands are quick and work through a level swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach. In the OF, he takes proper routes / angles in tracking down balls. He works to get behind and plays through with momentum to his target. Range will increase as he continues to improve foot quickness. On the mound, arm strength has improved as he threw his top velocity to date at 61 mph. Fastball shows a range of 58-61 mph with arm side run. Breaking ball displays 10/4 shape with gradual break. He maintains arm speed on his changeup but throws too hard, resembling fastball. He throws a slider that resembles breaking ball. Stock to the mound will continue to rise as he builds more arm strength and works to throw more strikes. Mental makeup is a plus as he is very coachable and works hard to be the best he can be.
