01/13/2023 - 2023 Baseball Factory Pre-Season All-America Tournament
Ethan continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities at the Preseason All American event. Foot speed has improved as he ran his best 60 time to date. At the plate is where he shows best through an athletic setup. Hands are quick (82 mph exit velocity) and work through a level swing path. He has strength in his swing and shows a feel for the barrel with power showing best to the pull side. Lower half works well through the swing with an aggressive hip turn. At 1B, he displays proper footwork around the bag and is a quality receiver. Hands are firm but needs to present earlier and more out front. Throws are accurate but needs to build more arm strength through a long toss program.
