07/07/2019 - Baseball Factory Cleveland All Star Experience (Ages 12-14)
Noah is a coachable 3B/C prospect who worked hard on his skills during the Cleveland All Star Experience. In the field, Noah gets into a low position and fields with soft, sure hands. He makes a clean exchange and keeps his throws accurate to his target. Increasing his lateral range can help Noah improve defensively. At the plate, this RHH sets up in a square stance and takes a square stride. He is controlled getting into his load and takes a level swing, leading to solid line drives. Noah can improve as a hitter by activating his hands more in his load. With seven more years to develop, Noah has the time and potential to further progress his skills on the field.
11/15/2018 - Baseball Factory Select Training & Competition at Pirate City (Ages 12-14)
Noah is a hard-working 2026 utility player that made several adjustments throughout the weekend. At the hot corner, Noah fields the ball in front of his body, he's aggressive on slow rollers, and makes accurate throws to all bases. He needs to continue to be on time with his prep step, present a low/early glove, and anticipate the ball off the bat. Continuing to long toss and work on game like throws in his throwing program will increase his arm strength and ability to throw from multiple arm angles. Behind the dish, Noah works hard to block and makes good throws to the bases. He needs to continue be in a balanced primary and have a more athletic secondary stance. At the plate, Noah has an athletic stance, loads his hands back into the drive position, and gets his front foot down on time. He stays balanced through contact and hits off a firm front side. He needs to continue to attack the inside part of the ball, create backside rotation with his lower half, and stay compact to the ball. Noah has a good baseball IQ and is eager to learn. He will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.
