11/05/2017 - Interactive Video Program - Hillsboro, OR William is an OF/RHP who will graduate in 2022. Defensively in the OF, he takes efficient routes/angles to the fly ball. He takes an aggressive crow hop on his throws and fires the ball to his target with loose arm action. On the mound, this RHP delivers a 3-pitch mix from a 3/4 arm slot. He separates on time, stays directional and finishes square towards home plate. As a hitter, William presents a square setup with balance. His lower 1/2 stays firm as he takes hard swings through the zone and sprays pitches to all parts of the field. Overall abilities in his game will improve with work on the following.
Defense 1. Lateral range 2. Work behind on fly balls 3. Quick exchange to throw Pitching 1. Work downhill 2. Lower 1/2 drive off rubber 3. Arm strength (long toss) Offense 1. Develop a load 2. Improve bat speed 3. Level out swing path
