07/17/2018 - Baseball Factory National World Series at Pirate City - Session 1 (Ages 12-14) Ryan is an athletic and talented 2023 infield prospect that works hard and made several adjustments throughout the week at Pirate City. On the infield, Ryan is on time with his prep step, presents a low/early glove, and works behind the ball. He has a clean exchange and a quick release on double play feeds. Continuing to practice game like throws in his throwing program will increase his ability to throw from multiple arm angles and on the run. At the plate, Ryan starts in an athletic stance, loads his hands back into the drive position, and stays balanced through contact. He creates back hip rotation into the ball and keeps a middle approach. Continuing to be aggressive in fastball counts and attacking the inside part of the ball will allow him to drive the ball gap to gap. Ryan is a grinder and has a high baseball IQ. Increasing overall arm and physical strength will elevate his game over time. He will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.
