06/20/2018 - Baseball Factory Select Training at the College World Series (Ages 12-14) Zakery is a 1B that shows improvement in every aspect of his game. Firstly, Zakery shows improvement in his 60-time (8.59 to an 8.00) as well as his home-to-first time (5.5 to a 5.33). In the field, he shows firm hands with quick exchanges into a loose arm action (high 3/4 arm slot) and makes accurate throws to his targets. Zakery's raw velocity had also improved from previous events jumping from 64mph to 66mph. He can improve defensively by implementing more active feet and by getting into a more athletic fielding position when making plays. At the plate, Zakery shows plate discipline through a closed set up and a short stride with a good load. Rhythm is fluid as he shows an on-plane swing path and makes consistent contact through a line drive approach. Zakery fights at the plate and finds ways to put the ball in play. He can improve offensively by staying loose and utilizing more of his lower half. Zakery shows great intangibles on the field as he is coachable, shows a good aptitude for the game and works hard. He is also a team player, hustles everywhere on the field and makes adjustments when he needs to.
