08/01/2018 - Baseball Factory National World Series at Pirate City - Session 2 (Ages 14-18) Michael continues to show steady progress in his baseball abilities. Pop times showed in the 2.38 range with accuracy on his throws. Times will continue to drop as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program and works to get rid of the ball quicker. He shows a solid setup and presents a low target. He utilizes his body well through the blocking process but needs to work to get down sooner. At the plate, he shows a tall setup. He has fluid rhythm while getting good hand separation. Hands are loose and work through a level swing path. He makes consistent contact through a line drive approach with power showing best to the pull side. At the event, he was 3 for 8. Mental makeup is a plus as he is very coachable and is a solid team player.
