01/15/2021 - 2021 Softball Factory Pre-Season All-America Tournament Ava continues to show as a prospect on the field. At the plate is where she shows best, displaying solid hitting / power potential through a tall setup. Hands are quick (55 mph exit velocity) and work through a level swing path. She makes consistent contact through a line drive approach. At SS, she displays clean / smooth actions. Feet are active as she displays proper footwork as she works to square ground balls up and plays through with her body. Glove action is clean and presents well out front. Throws are accurate with carry (56 mph velocity) to her target but will benefit by building more arm strength through a long toss program. Range is a plus as she moves well laterally and covers a lot of ground. Mental makeup is a plus as she is very coachable, works hard to be the best player she can be, and is a team player.
