07/27/2018 - Baseball Factory National World Series at Pirate City - Session 1 (Ages 14-18)
Noah is an athletic and talented 2019 catching prospect that worked hard and made several adjustments throughout the week at Pirate City. Behind the dish, Noah starts in an athletic primary/secondary stance and works behind the ball when receiving. He shows a big target and has strong hands. He needs to continue to exchange the ball in front of his body and create momentum in his lower half to have a quicker release. At the plate, Noah starts in an open stance, loads his hands back into the drive position, and stays balanced through contact. He gets his front foot down on time, hits off a firm front side, and hunts the fastball. Noah is a leader on the field and truly had the thought process of getting better every day. He will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.

Noah is a big, solid catcher who has a promising future on the diamond. At the plate is where he shows best, displaying well above average hitting abilities with outstanding power potential through an open setup. Hands are quick and work through an aggressive swing path. He has strength in his swing and shows a feel for the barrel with power showing best to the pull side. Power will increase as he works to utilize his lower half more efficiently. Behind the dish, he utilizes his feet well in working in line to his target through a clean transfer / exchange as he gets rid of the baseball quickly. Pop times show a range of 2.19-2.49 with accuracy on his throws. Time will continue to drop as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. He displays a soft glove and sticks balls well in the zone but will benefit by improving his flexibility. He uses his body through the blocking process but needs to work to get body down sooner and cover all holes. Noah has potential and will get looks from the collegiate coaches as he continues to progress his game.
