07/26/2013 - Baseball Factory National World Series at Pirate City
Tyler was very impressive and showed a lot of potential at Pirate City, especially on the defensive side of the ball. He displayed soft/quick hands, fluid footwork, smooth actions and good athleticism. He needs to continue polishing his skills and working on footwork (speed, lateral movement etc.) At the plate Tyler has an athletic setup, smooth load, centered balance, lower half works, timing is good and his swing path is on-plane. He needs to stay back and allow the ball to travel into the proper hitting zone. Tyler seems to love playing the game and he showed the potential to be a standout player in the future.
