Really excited to work with this kid who is transitioning from SS to CF to take advantage of his speed (6.3 60-yard dash) and athletic ability. He’s a super raw talent with an incredible work ethic.
Last year, he hit a whopping .388 as a junior in one of the top Southern California leagues in Southern California. While he only tallied two extra base hits, he has quick, strong hands and plus power, so we’re working on developing a more aggressive approach and mentality at the plate so he can tap into that power and demonstrate the ability to hit doubles and home runs to further wow the scouts.
Because he is an inexperienced outfielder, he lacks elite footwork, reads, and routes. Thus, we’re working on these defensive skills through various drills, including fielding/attacking ground balls and chasing down fly balls over his head. •
No doubt he’s going to be a great player someday, but like anyone else, he’s gotta put in the work. I’m excited to see where he ends up next year after completion of this training program.
