01/13/2023 - 2023 Baseball Factory Rookie Pre-Season All-America Tournament
Ty is a 2027 OF/RHP out of Port Chester, NY who showcased his skills at the BF Rookie PSAA Tournament. In the OF, he showed athletic actions as he tracks the ball well and works through the baseball. Good first step reads enable him to run down balls in all directions. He fields from an athletic/square fielding position with his hands out front. He creates momentum to his target as he throws from a high 3/4 arm slot with an arm velocity up to 74mph. At the plate, this switch hitter hits from an athletic and even stance with loose hands. A controlled load, with good bat to ball skills, and hits into a firm frontside. Gets good extension as he hit balls into both gaps. During the games, Ty reached base 2 times with 2 singles. On the mound, he separates his hands on-time and strides in line. He attacks hitters with a FB that sat 72-74mph, and an 11/5 shaped breaking ball. With 4 1/2 years of continued growth and development, we foresee Ty making huge strides on the baseball diamond.
