05/28/2019 - 2019 Under Armour Showcase: Baseball Factory's National South Sam is a pure catch and throw backstop who also will make an impact with the bat. Behind the dish, he presents a soft/sure mitt showing great pocket awareness sticking pitches. Quick lateral movements allow him to center/deaden pitches in the dirt off of a soft chest. Runners will not want to test his cannon for an arm with impressive pop times of 1.94. Offensively, he continues to shine with tremendous hitting/power potential. He has athletic/smooth actions with fluid rhythm to load. He gets good hand separation and delivers the barrel with leverage, resulting in a barrel explosion (87 mph exit velocity) with the ball screaming off of his barrel. Sam has the makings of a special type player and will get looks from collegiate coaches with his baseball abilities.
