07/27/2018 - Baseball Factory National World Series at Pirate City - Session 1 (Ages 14-18) Reese is an athletic and talented 2019 Catching prospect that worked hard and made several adjustments throughout the week at Pirate City. Behind the dish, Reese creates momentum in his lower half and has a strong arm when throwing to the bases. He needs to have a balanced primary/secondary stance and present a low/early target. Working under and behind the ball will allow him to be stronger when catching the ball. He needs to lead with his glove and get both knees down when blocking. Anticipating balls in the dirt and reacting to strikes will allow him to be on time. At the plate, Reese starts in an open stance, gets his front foot down on time, and loads his hands back into the drive position. He has good bat speed and extends his hands through contact. Attacking the inside part of the ball and creating backside rotation will allow him to keep the barrel on plane. Reese has a high baseball IQ and will continue to improve with experience. We hope to see his progress in the future.
