07/05/2018 - California Select Training & Competition - Session 1 (Ages 12-14) T. J is an athletic and talented 2023 2-way prospect. In the OF, T.J has an active prep step and attacks ground balls. He creates angles to the ball and creates momentum in his lower half when throwing to the bases. Continuing to work on his agilities will increase his first step quickness to the ball. At the plate, T.J starts in an athletic stance, loads his hands back into the drive position, and hits off a firm front side. He attacks the inside part of the ball and sees the ball deep into his contact zone. Continuing to get his front foot down on time and keeping his head down at contact will improve his pitch recognition. On the bump, T.J gathers over the rubber, separates on time, and extends thru his target. He works north to south and throws two pitches for strikes. T.J is a hard worker and made several adjustments throughout the week. He will improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.
