07/22/2018 - Baseball Factory National World Series at Pirate City - Session 2 (Ages 12-14) Nate is an athletic and talented 2022 Catching prospect that is eager to learn and made several adjustments throughout the week at Pirate City. Behind the dish, Nate has a solid pre pitch set up and works behind the ball when receiving. He leads with his glove to block and controls the ball with his chest. Continuing to exchange the ball in front of his body and creating momentum in his lower half when throwing will increase his direction toward the bases. At the plate, Nate starts in an athletic stance, loads his hands back into the drive position, and separates on time. He keeps a quiet head, stays balanced through contact, and makes contact to all fields. He needs to continue to attack the inside part of the ball and create back hip rotation into the ball. Nate will continue to improve his baseball IQ through experience and overall reps at the position. He's a team player and we hope to see his progress in the future.
