09/12/2009 - E-ACR - Maryland 8 Sam continues to improve his baseball skills, as shown by improved 60-time, pop times, and velocity. Behind the plate, made receiving look easy as he showed good low target and stuck all pitches with soft hands. Good flexion in arm allowed him to get around ball and demonstrated quiet actions. As he was blocking, quick athletic actions allowed him to take good angles to center and deaden ball. Showed a quick recover after blocking. Had quick exchange with some carry on throws to 2B. Pop times will improve as he spreads feet and gets backside up. At the plate, small load led to quick direct hands to hitting zone. Kept hands inside as he was able to hit balls to all fields. Was able to repeat swing which allowed him to center all balls.
