12/29/2019 - Interactive Video Program - Swarthmore (Philadelphia), PA Ava is a C/2B prospect who will graduate in 2026. Behind the plate, Ava sits in a low stance and tracks the ball into her glove well. She works to block and keeps her throws accurate to the 2B bag. Increasing her range to block can help Ava improve as a C. At 2B, Ava gets into a low position and fields the ball out in front of her body. She throws from a 3/4 angle and keeps her throws accurate to her target. Ava can improve as a 2B by long tossing to build up her arm strength. At the plate, this RHH sets up in an athletic stance with center balance. She is fluid getting into her load and generates fast bat speed through the zone, leading to loud contact and line drives to all fields. Continuing to add strength can help Ava improve as a hitter. With six more years to develop, Ava has the time and potential to further progress her skills on the field.
