12/27/2018 - Baseball Factory Christmas Camp & Tournament at Pirate City - Session 2 (Ages 14-18) Ricky is a strong and athletic 2020 Catching prospect that was eager to learn. Behind the dish, Ricky showed good leadership skills and worked hard during drill work. When throwing he replaces his feet and makes accurate throws with a clean release. He needs to continue to present a low target and work behind the ball when receiving. Continuing to lead with his glove and controlling balls in the dirt with his chest will make him an efficient blocker. At the plate, Ricky looks to use the whole field and had several good at bats throughout the week. He stars in an open stance, loads his hands back into the drive position, and creates backside drive with his lower half. He needs to continue to control the barrel and improve his pitch recognition. Ricky is a smart player and we hope to see his progress in the future.
