06/25/2021 - Baseball Factory All-State Tournament (MS) Jacob continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities. At the plate, power potential has improved through an open setup. Hands are quick (86 mph exit velocity) and work through level swing path. He makes consistent hard contact and stays inside the ball, flashing gap to gap pop. At the event, he was 2 for 5 with a 3B. Behind the plate, feet are active as he works in line through a clean transfer / exchange. Pop times have improved as he threw his lowest time to date at 2.19 and will continue to drop as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. He shows a squared setup and presents a soft mitt out front and utilizes his body through the blocking process, centering balls well out front. Receiving / blocking skills show as quality tools that will play well.
