07/11/2013 - College PREP - Cheyenne, WY Kara is versatile young C/1B with a well-balanced skill set. As a C, she is a sure handed receiver with a quick clean exchange and a strong arm that produces accurate results. She has a good frame for the position, catches the ball clean when framing and will benefit from widening her stance, lowering her target and keeping her knees off the ground and square when receiving. She displays advanced awareness, is on time to block with good body control and should continue to work on getting to bunts as quickly as possible while keeping her footwork to throw a priority. As a 1B, Kara displays athletic pre-pitch footwork, plays with high energy and makes good double play feeds. She positions herself well, is good with her feet around the bag and should continue to work on playing lower with early glove position out front with fingers down. She has fluid footwork with agile range and should continue to take reps at both positions to keep sharp. At the plate, Kara uses a square set up with a back load, a short stride and keeps her balance centered before launching her aggressive swing to the ball. Long at times, her swing recovers to produce hard contact and will do so more consistently when shortened. She flashes pop at times, displays consistent timing and is able to consistently keep pressure on the defense with a college level bunt game. Overall, Kara has a world of natural ability and with continued hard work and proper instruction, playing at the college level becomes a very realistic goal.
