01/26/2013 - College PREP - Jackson, MS Dianna is a very talented 1B with advanced feel for the game at a young age. She is a soft, sure handed defender with a quick release that produces accurate results. She has good bag presence, presents glove early and drives low when going to her back hand side which she covers well. Incorporating a consistent pre-pitch prep-step will allow her to use her feet more effectively off of the bat, ultimately covering more ground effectively. At the plate, Dianna uses a closed stance with a back load, short stride and keeps her balance cantered before launching her short swing to the ball. An aggressive hitter, she has pop, makes hard contact consistently and possesses explosive bat speed which suggests power potential is very high. She will benefit from staying through contact to create better extension, getting her back side all the way through(pivot)and seeing the ball deeper before launching to the inside part of the ball to hit it where its pitched. Overall, with continued hard work and with quality instruction, the sky is the limit when it comes to how good a player like Dianna can be. She is certainly a player to keep an eye on through her progression over the next three years.
