08/02/2017 - Baseball Factory National World Series at Pirate City - Session 2 (Ages 14-18) Matthew is a athletic MIF who worked hard on his skills during his time at Pirate City. He is a coachable player who can make adjustments quickly. Defensively, he shows active footwork and is aggressive to come and get the GB. He funnels with soft/sure hands, and fires accurate throws to 1B. As a hitter, he has smooth actions with rhythm to load. Barrel is delivered quickly through a level path as he connects and hits line-drives. Continuing to work on his contact points, driving the ball where it's pitched will help him to utilize the entire field. Matthew is a team player who gives his all every time he steps onto the diamond. He should find success thanks to his all around solid skill-set on the diamond.
