07/27/2018 - Baseball Factory National World Series at Pirate City - Session 1 (Ages 14-18) Tate is an athletic and talented SS prospect that runs the bases well and made several adjustments throughout the week at Pirate City. At SS, Tate has an active prep step, presents a low/early glove, and has good range on both sides of the ball. He's aggressive to the ball and plays through his back hand. Continuing to practice game like throws in his throwing program will increase his ability to throw from multiple arm angles and on the run. At the plate, Tate starts in an open stance, loads his hands back, and has smooth actions in his load. His lower half works well and he attacks the inside part of the ball. He needs to keep a quiet head and hunt the fastball. Tate will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.
