01/15/2016 - Baseball Factory Spring Training in Arizona (Ages 14-18) Max is a hard working ball player that showed strong aptitude at the Baseball Factory Spring Training in Arizona. Defensively, he made plays with a soft glove and worked in his legs to throw after catch. He had a nice release and threw on-line to his targets. Offensively, he showed good rhythm in his hands and delivered the barrel on a direct path to contact with his hands and hips working together. He worked on perfecting his timing while at camp, and implemented tracking drills to see the ball all the way to contact. On the mound, he threw a FB from 70-74, and spun an 11/5 SL from 56-58. He had a smooth, controlled delivery and really competed on the mound, mixing both pitches for strikes. In all - Max has a bright future in the game as he grows and adds strength to his sound fundamental skill.
