06/29/2023 - Cape Cod Select Training & Competition (HS) Sam continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities. At the plate is where he has improved the most, now displaying well above average hitting abilities with outstanding power potential through a crouched, squared setup. Hands are quick (85 mph exit velocity) and work through a level swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields with gap-to-gap power. Lower half works well through the swing with an aggressive hip turn. At the event, he was 3 for 6 with a 3B. In the OF, defensive abilities have improved as he displays clean / smooth actions. Feet are active as he takes proper routes / angles in tracking down balls. He works to get behind balls and plays through with momentum to his target. He moves well with range improving as he increases foot quickness. Throws are accurate, flashing carry but will benefit by building more arm strength through a long toss program. Mental makeup is a plus as he has a positive attitude, works hard, and is very coachable.
