08/23/2015 - College PREP - Honolulu, HI Lia is a 2017 two-way player as a C/OF with a developing skill set. In the box Lia is a RHH that uses a square stance with good balance. She has an aggressive approach, extends through the hitting zone and is a spray hitter. Adding a stride and load to her swing will allow Lia to engage her lower half and creating a weight transfer so that she can see an increase in her power production. In the OF Lia is an athletic player that reads the ball off the bat well. She has active footwork and works to play through the ball. She uses the proper arm slot and has a strong arm. Getting in line with her target will help Lia to make accurate throws to her target. Behind the plate Lia has a good presence and communicates with her team. She presents her glove on time, looks the ball in and receives with soft/sure hands. She reacts quickly to balls in the dirt and does a nice job of keeping them in front. Staying low in her stance will allow Lia to engage her lower half and explode to bunt coverage. Overall Lia is a hard working player and with continued coaching, reps and exposure she will have the opportunity to take her game to the collegiate level.
