02/11/2017 - Hitting Accelerated Training Weekend (Ages 14-18) Walker continues to make strides in his game. He remains balanced with fluid rhythm to load at the plate. He barrels the ball up with strength and shows the ability to use the entire field hitting the ball where it's pitched. Working to let the ball travel deeper into the hitting zone, along with unlocking his lower 1/2 more will help to tap into even more power. This 2019 grad still has time to fine tune his swing and get to where he wants to be.

12/27/2014 - Baseball Factory Winter Classic - Session 2 Walker is a young player and a team first guy. Defensively, he attacks the baseball, plays downhill and is athletic in the infield. He gathers well and has a clean exchange to throw. Focusing on his fielding position and hands will help him to improve as a SS. At the plate, Walker sets up athletically with good balance.

Tool Grade Scale

Our main goals with the BF "10-70" Scouting Scale are to provide the player with a realistic evaluation of his "PRESENT" abilities (what he can do today), and to provide college coaches with information they can use to identify and/or compare potential recruits.

Tools are graded for all players and pitchers, regardless of age or graduation year. However, for High School players we use only grades 20-70 (grades 10-18 do not apply), while for Middle School players we use only grades 10-52 (grades 55-70 do not apply).
