05/28/2017 - Interactive Video Program - Salem, OR Wade is a tall, athletic RHP/OF. Defensively in the OF, he takes a prep step and is aggressive as he attacks the GB. He tries to get into a square fielding position and hustles hard laterally tracking down fly balls. On the mound, this righty keeps his eyes on target and delivers with clean arm action. He throws a 3-pitch mix from a 3/4 arm slot as he stays directional and finishes strong towards home plate. With the stick, Wade uses a middle of the field approach. He strides his front foot on time as he swings on plane through the zone and creates consistent contact with each pitch. Overall abilities in his game will improve with work on the following.
Defense 1. Get behind the fly ball 2. Clean exchange to throw 3. Play through the ball Pitching 1. Stronger frontside 2. Use lower 1/2 3. Arm strength (long toss) Offense 1. Develop a load 2. Improve bat speed 3. Stay balanced through contact
