01/18/2019 - Baseball Factory Spring Training at Historic Dodgertown
Shooter is an athletic and talented 2024 2-way prospect with high energy. At SS, Shooter is on time with his prep step, he fields the ball in an athletic position, and works from the ground up. He needs to continue to anticipate the ball off the bat, improve his first step to the ball, and play through his back hand. He has good footwork on double plays and throws from multiple arm angles. At the plate, Shooter starts in an athletic stance, he has a simple load, and gets his front foot down on time. He needs to continue to have a rhythm in his hands, attack the inside part of the ball, and create backside drive with his lower half. On the bump, Shooter has a good frame, stays squared on the rubber, and strides inline toward the plate. He needs to continue to gather over the rubber, separates on time, and ride his back leg toward the plate. Shooter has a good baseball IQ and we hope to see his progress in the future.
10/13/2018 - Mid-Atlantic Regional Hitting Weekend (Ages 12-14)
Shooter is an athletic prospect that worked hard and made several adjustments during the Mid-Atlantic Hitting Camp. At the plate, Shooter starts in a crouched stance, has rhythm in his load, and gets his front foot down on time. He hits off a firm front side, loads knee to knee, and creates backside rotation with his lower half. He needs to continue to load his hands back into the drive position, and attack the inside part of the ball. Continuing to keep his head down at contact will allow him to stay balanced at throughout his swing more consistently. Shooter is very coachable and eager to learn. He will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.
