05/30/2013 - College World Series Select Training Amber continues to improve athletically. She is a hard worker, makes adjustments, and is extremely coachable. As a SS, she has an athletic pre-pitch position, a consistent, accurate arm slot, efficient pivots when throwing and quick footwork that compliment her agile range in terms of fielding. Continuing to focus on soft, sure glovework and quick double play feeds will increase fielding success. As an OF, she has an athletic pre-pitch position with an aggressive approach to the ball, a strong, accurate arm when throwing, agile range, fluid footwork, and a good drop step when fielding. Continuing to focus on getting to her powerline and finishing each throw, will increase velocity and carry. As a hitter, Amber has a consistent stride and load and a short, level bat path that produces contact. Continuing to focus on utilizing the lower half, driving the hands through the zone, and tracking will increase power and consistency. Implementing a strength and conditioning program will increase agility, athleticism, and endurance. With continued application of recommendations, Amber will be on track for seeking collegiate attention.
01/26/2013 - College PREP - Jackson, MS Amber is a young, aggressive SS/OF from the 2015 class. As an OF, she has some pre-pitch foot work, catches the ball at the top with 2 hands and hustles to everything after tracking it clean off the bat. To further develop, she will need to field groundballs out front and on the outside of her glove foot before getting into her power step/crow hop to effectively throw. As a SS, Amber keeps active feet and displayed soft, sure hands with good range to her back hand side. She will benefit from using a smaller glove in the infield, having early glove position and keeping her feet active through the catch and throw process. At the plate, Amber uses a square set up with a downward load, simple stride and her weight centered at times before launching her aggressive swing to the ball. Long at times, her swing recovers because of fast bat speed to produce solid contact, and if shortened could produce these kinds of results consistently. She is a solid contact hitter and will experience improvements to her quality of contact and power production as she uses her lower half more aggressively on every swing.
