06/23/2018 - Omaha National World Series - Session 2 (Ages 14-18) Owen is an athletic and talented 2020 Catching prospect. Behind the dish, Owen has a big, squared target and sees the ball into his glove. Continuing to be in a relaxed secondary will allow him to anticipate and reads balls in the dirt. Leading with his glove to block and allowing the body to following will put him into a strong position to control the ball with his chest. At the plate, Owen starts in squared stance, loads his hands into the drive position, and keeps a quiet head. He uses his lower half and stays balanced through contact. Continuing to get his stride foot down on time will allow him to recognize pitches and see the ball deep into the contact zone. Being aggressive in fastball counts will also increase his productivity in games. Owen is eager to learn and will continue to improve with experience. We hope to see his progress in the future.
