05/18/2014 - College PREP - St. Louis, MO Kaylin is an evolving 1B and OF. Defensively, she understands the demands of both positions well. As a 1B, she makes accurate throws, fields using sure hands and makes plays consistently. Working on an athletic pre-pitch position, fluid footwork to both gloveside and backhand and staying light on the feet will help to improve range and efficiency. As an OF, she has good reads off the bat and stays on line when throwing. Working on quicker feet, a more athletic arm slot and using the lower half when throwing will help to improve velocity and efficiency. Overall, Kaylin has a confident approach to playing defense.
