01/18/2019 - 2019 Under Armour All-America Pre-Season Tournament Trace is an athletic and strong 2020 catching prospect with high energy. Behind the dish, Trace starts in a balanced primary stance and has an athletic secondary stance. When receiving, he works behind the ball, sees the ball into the glove, and works the ball back into the zone. When blocking, he leads with his glove, shows lateral range, and controls balls with his chest. When throwing, Trace creates momentum with his lower half, has a clean exchange, and makes accurate throws. At the plate, Trace starts in an athletic stance and loads his hands back into the drive position. He's smooth to the ball, shows pull side pop, and drives the ball to all fields. He creates backside drive and stays balanced through contact. Trace is a polished catcher and we hope to see his progress in the future.
