12/27/2015 - Baseball Factory Winter Classic - Session 2
Travis Wedding is progressing very well as a L/L 1B/LHP. Offensively, he showed good rhythm to hit and tracked the baseball to his barrel. He showed a line-drive path with good core rotation and flashed pop to his pull-side. Defensively, he showed good athleticism and made plays with efficient footwork. He showed good knowledge for the position and had solid fundamental skill to make the routine plays. On the mound, he threw a FB up to 67, and spun a 1/7 CB from 56-57. He kept his eyes on the target throughout the delivery and showed good front side glove action. All in all - Travis is showing strengths as he gets ready to enter his 8th grade spring season, and with added strength over time has a shot to be a very good player.

Travis continues to work hard on his game. On the mound, this lefty works to a tall balance point and maintains level shoulders. FB ranges from 61-64 mph as he works both sides of the plate. Breaking ball has 1/7 shape with gradual action (53-55 mph). He repeats well and mixes his pitches. Finishing with extension out over his front side will help to improve effectiveness on all pitches. At 1B, Travis makes the backhand play smoothly. He moves well around the bag with the ability to pick it. Presenting his glove and fielding the ball more out in front will help to improve defensive skills. With the bat, this lefty shows a balanced approach with rhythm in his hands. He connects with strength and drives the ball on a line. Leveling out his swing path will help to increase contact consistency. Only a 2020 grad - Travis still has a ton to time to develop on the diamond.
