08/01/2018 - Baseball Factory National World Series at Pirate City - Session 2 (Ages 14-18) Matteo is a young, solid, 3rd baseman with good offensive skills. Defensively, Matteo has a presentable glove, he keeps the ball in front of his body, and fields in a square position. He has a clean exchange and a long/accurate arm across the diamond. Quicker feet, attacking more aggressively, and fielding more out in front can help defense improve. At the plate, Matteo has an open stance, a short stride, and good balance. He tracks well, has fast bat speed, and hits with strength to the pull side. Hitting can spike with more load, better timing, and work on barrel accuracy.
