07/13/2012 - 2012 Team One South Showcase Tate is an average sized 2nd baseman who will graduate in 2013. Defensively, Tate has sure hands, active feet, and he covers ground well. He makes plays, his exchange is clean, and he throws with accuracy across the diamond. More aggressiveness to the ball and added arm strength will help improve defensive. At the plate, Tate has a solid set-up, good balance, and a level swing. He is short to the ball and flashes decent bat speed. A better load, quicker hands, and more lower 1/2 can help hitting rise.
