11/06/2020 - Baseball Factory Select Training & Competition in Arizona Malachi impressed coaches at the Arizona Fall Select Training and Competition with his attitude and energy. This 12 year old projects both as a catcher and as a hitter. He is well put together and puts a charge into the baseball at the plate. He displays both rhythm and explosiveness through the ball from both sides. Behind the dish, he blocks extremely well for his age. He needs to continue focusing on quickening up his exchange from glove to hand on throw-downs to second base and gaining more flexibility to keep him behind the plate for many years to come. With his age and his ability to grasp information quickly, this 2026 graduate has a real bright future on the diamond.
