01/26/2014 - National Tryout - Myrtle Beach, SC Ford continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities. At the plate is where he has improved the most, now showing solid average hitting / power numbers through a squared / athletic setup. Hands are quick, flashing bat speed through a level swing path. He shows a feel for the barrel with baseball jumping off the bat when centered. Power numbers will continue to improve as he learns to use his lower half more. In the OF, he takes proper routes / angles in tracking down balls through smooth / clean actions. Defensive grade will continue to improve as he learns to get behind ball more and play through with momentum to his target. Throws display life and on line carry through his target as he gets rid of the baseball quickly.
