12/27/2019 - Under Armour Baseball Factory Recruiting Classic (Ages 14-18)
Seth is an athletic catching prospect that has a high baseball IQ behind the dish and on the base paths. Behind the dish, Seth is a leader and calls a good game. He starts in a quiet primary stance, he presents a low target, and works behind the ball when receiving. When blocking, he leads with his glove and creates a good angle over the ball. Anticipating balls in the dirt and improving hip mobility will improve his blocking skills. When throwing, Seth has a clean exchange and replaces his feet. Working into the ball, gaining ground, and keeping his shoulder squared to his target will improve his accuracy. Following a long toss program to build arm strength will improve his overall ability to throw. At the plate, Seth starts in a tall stance and loads his hands back. He needs to create separation and load his hands back into the drive position. He rotates his lower half but attacking the inside part of the ball will allow him to have a more direct swing path. Seth will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.
