10/21/2012 - College PREP - Waterford Township (Detroit), MI Aspen is a strong player with an athletic frame. As an infielder, she has decent glove work and playable range that compliment her strong, accurate arm. Focus on a less-restrictive pre-pitch (relaxed shoulders); athleticism while in motion (utilizing her lower half); and staying low on backhands will improve her efficiency, consistency and accuracy on the field. In the outfield, Aspen demonstrates proper routes, good reads, and soft hands. She will benefit from a throwing program that focuses on increasing arm strength and velocity. At first base, Aspen's presence enhances her aggressiveness, active footwork and sure hands on both groundballs and picks. Focus on a balanced pre-pitch set-up (not staggered) and driving low on backhands. In the box, Aspen has decent contact, quick hands and flashes of power. A wider stance, explosive hips, proper weight transfer and full extension through the zone will allow her to be adaptive and increase her power and effectiveness. In all, Aspen is on track for collegiate attention and will continue to develop through application and experience.
