06/23/2018 - Omaha National World Series - Session 2 (Ages 14-18) Matthew is an athletic and talented 2020 catching prospect. Behind the dish, Matthew presents a low/early target, works behind the ball when receiving, and has soft hands. He has a quick exchange and makes accurate throws to the bases. Continuing to lead with the glove and getting the lower half into a strong foundation will allow him to block balls side to side more consistently. At the plate, Matthew starts in an athletic stance and loads his hands back into the drive position. He hits off a firm front side and makes consistent hard contact. Continuing to attack the inside part of the ball and using his lower half will allow him to drive the ball gap to gap. Matthew plays the game hard and is very coachable. Matthew will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.
