02/23/2019 - Mid Atlantic Regional Hitting Weekend (Ages 14-18)
Shayne is an athletic and talented 2019 prospect that has a high baseball IQ and was eager to learn. At the plate, Shayne starts in a squared and relaxed stance. He keeps a quiet head, loads his hands back into the drive position, and has a high contact rate on fastballs in the zone. He attacks the inside part of the ball, creates backside drive with his lower half, and whips the barrel through the zone. He needs to continue to repeat his swing and stay consistent by not spinning off the ball too early. Shayne will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.
