OVERALL Position Projection: RHP | 3B
11/07/2013 - Softball Factory Select Training at Vero Beach Francesca is a talented RHP and 3B with a well-balanced skill set. Defensively, she understands the demands of both positions well. As a RHP, she uses a quick arm swing to increase natural velocity. Working on keeping the arm swing tight to the body and a more composed stature will help her to create a smooth rhythm and more consistent accuracy. As a 3B, she fields with sure hands and uses active footwork as she takes good angles to various balls. Working on range and double play feeds will help to improve fielding efficiency. Overall, Francesca is a hard worker and has a confident approach to playing defense. At the plate, she uses a square set up with mid hands, a smooth load and a short stride as she makes hard contact to all hitting fields. She shows good power and will benefit from driving her hands through the zone quickly to improve power and extension on contact, ultimately allowing her to access the entire field effectively. Overall, Francesca is an eager, passionate athlete and has solid athletic ability to help aid in her continued development as a player.
