01/15/2016 - Under Armour All-America Pre-Season Tournament Taiton Gillespie is a tall/athletic built OF that showed exceptional defensive skill at his most recent outing with Baseball Factory. In the OF, he was efficient with his footwork to make plays with a soft glove and worked with good body control to play through the ball to throw with momentum. He attacked the ball well and covered ground with decent speed (7.32 sixty). Offensively, he barreled balls up with ease, keeping his head quiet throughout his swing process. He used the entire field and was very direct to and through the zone with hand and hip coordination. All in all - Taiton has a promising future in the game, with an ability to play any of the three positions in the OF.
