01/26/2013 - College PREP - Jackson, MS Katie Grace is a young, athletic slap hitter who can play 1B and the OF. As a 1B, she has soft, sure hands, tracks the ball well and keeps active feet with pretty good footwork around the bag. She will benefit from having earlier glove position, throwing through her target and continuing to work on short hop ability. As an OF, She has a similar steady skill set but adds the ability to get behind fly balls before using a solid power step to consistently produce accurate throws. Continuing to improve her arm strength through long toss will help her overall ability to defend efficiently with a strong first step off the bat and footwork to throw remaining a priority. At the plate, Katie Grace is a slapper with good bat control, foot speed and the ability to keep pressure on the defense. To further develop offensively, she should work to keep her front side on the ball longer, keep hands level through the zone and work to finish every swing without recoil. Overall, with time to develop, Katie Grace should continue to seek quality reps and instruction to ensure her development continues in a timely manner.
