11/08/2018 - Baseball Factory Select Training & Competition at Pirate City (Ages 14-18) Stephen is an athletic and talented 2019 middle infield prospect. At 2B, Stephen is on time with his prep step, anticipates the ball off the bat, and presents a low/early glove. He has a clean exchange and works around the ball. He needs to continue to be more fluid on double play feeds and turns. Long tossing and throwing from multiple arm angles in his throwing program will increase his athleticism and arm strength for the position. At the plate, Stephen starts in a tall and open stance. He loads his hands back into the drive position, keeps the barrel level to the ball, and creates backside rotation in his lower half. He needs to continue to attack the inside part of the ball and get his top hand extended thru contact. Stephen hustles all over the field and shows leadership skills. Stephen will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.
