07/21/2019 - Baseball Factory National World Series at Pirate City - Session 2 (Ages 12-14) Riley is a strong, athletic catcher who has a tremendous future on the diamond. Behind the plate, feet are aggressive and active as he works in line to his target, through a clean transfer / exchange. Pop times show in the range of 2.40-2.50 with accuracy. Times will continue to drop as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program and works to get rid of the baseball quicker. Glove action is soft and he sticks in the zone. He utilizes his body well through the blocking process, centering balls out front. At the plate, he continues to shine through a tall, open setup. Hands are quick and work through a level 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 utilizes his lower half more efficiently. Mental makeup is a plus as he is very coachable and works hard to be the best player he can be. With 4 years to further develop, Riley has the makings of a special type player with time and room to progress his game.
