12/09/2017 - Accelerated Hitting Weekend PHS- Columbia, MD Tyler is a hard working and coachable player that made several adjustments during the Hitting Accelerated Training Weekend. At the plate, Tyler starts in an athletic-open stance, and has a soft stride. He stays balanced through contact, shows great bat speed and stays on plane with the ball. Loading his hands back into the drive position and using his lower half will allow him to hit drive the ball gap to gap. Recognizing the spin of the ball from the pitchers release point and seeing the ball deep into the contact zone will help him recognize pitches and be on time. Tyler will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.
