08/02/2018 - Baseball Factory Pro Select Training at Historic Dodgertown (Ages 12-14)
Wade is a big, strong 2023 catching prospect. He flashes serious raw power to drive the ball to all fields. Hands stay inside the ball to cover the whole zone and hit any pitch. He makes consistent, square contact and shows gap-to-gap ability to profile as a potential middle of the order hitter. Footwork behind the plate is active and he slides well side to side. He receives the ball well and tracks it with his eyes to stick it in the zone. A long toss program will improve arm strength. Wade is a player with lots of potential on the field.
