10/01/2017 - Interactive Video Program - Trenton, NJ Owen is a young C/3B who will graduate in 2023. Defensively behind the plate, he presents and receives pitches with a soft mitt. He has a quick release and makes accurate/on-line throws to his target. At 3B, he shows active footwork and gets into a low/square fielding position on GB's. He moves well to his glove side and fields the ball with soft hands. At the plate, Owen has an aggressive approach and is looking to swing it.
