07/05/2018 - California Select Training & Competition - Session 1 (Ages 12-14) Zion continues to show progress in his baseball abilities. He did show behind the plate for the first time at the event. Pop times showed a range of 2.78-2.90 with accuracy on his throws. Times will continue to drop as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. Feet are quick in gaining ground through a clean transfer / exchange. He shows a solid setup and sticks balls well in the zone and utilizes his body well through the blocking process but needs to work to get down sooner. At the plate, hands are quick and work inside the ball, utilizing all fields. He makes consistent contact through a line drive approach. At the event, he was 4 for 7 with a 2B. Mental makeup is a plus as he has a great personality, is very coachable and works hard to be the best player he can be.
