01/18/2019 - Baseball Factory Spring Training in Arizona (Ages 12-14) William is an athletic and talented 2-way prospect that worked hard all weekend. Behind the dish, William presents a low target and works behind the ball when receiving. He leads with his glove and shows the ability to block the ball laterally. He needs to continue to exchange the ball in front of his body, shorten up his foot work, and build overall arm strength. At the plate, William starts in a relaxed and athletic stance. He gets his front foot down on time, loads his hands back into the drive position, and keeps the barrel on plane to the ball. On the bump, William gathers over the rubber, attacks the strike zone, and stays directional toward the plate. He needs to continue to develop his change up and challenge hitter inside with his fastball. William will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.
