09/27/2015 - Interactive Video Program - Bowie, MD Shuaib is a young, R/R 2-way player (OF/C). In the OF, he is aggressive and hustles to track down fly-balls to his right and left. He secures the ball and works to play through it well toward his target. Behind the plate, Syed sits in with quiet actions and tracks pitches into his mitt. He has a clean exchange and works in-line toward 2B on his throws down. Offensively, Syed shows a square setup with rhythm. Loose hands whip the barrel on a level path as he connects and works to drive the middle of the field. Overall abilities in his game will improve with work on the following.
Outfield 1. 1st step quickness 2. Routes/Angles 3. Transfer/Exchange Catching 1. Setup 2. Blocking 3. Arm Strength (long toss) Offense 1. Widen base 2. Swing path 3. Contact points
