02/10/2013 - College PREP - Sacramento, CA Allison is a sure handed C with a balanced skill set. Defensively, she uses her feet well to throw, has a good glove-to hand transfer and has a strong presence behind the plate. She will benefit from staying lower to throw, keeping her hips lower when blocking and getting her fingers to the outside of the ball to effectively catch and hold pitches on the inner half of the plate. At the plate, Allison uses a square set up with a downward load, no stride, centered balance and has a short path to the ball. She will experience better quality of contact and more power production if she uses her lower half more aggressively, keeps her bat head through contact to create extension and improves strength in wrists/forearms to improve bat speed. She consistently makes contact and is pretty good with the bunt which allows her to consistently put pressure on opposing defenses. Overall, Allison is continuing to develop and needs to commit to making some adjustments and getting stronger to realize her goals of playing at the next level, with proper preparation she has the potential to consistently get better.
