08/03/2014 - National Tryout - Albany, NY Madison is an athletic 2016 grad who projects well as a corner infielder. Her biggest strength is her hitting where she shows a nice line-drive approach from a closed stance. Madison does a nice job of setting her hands back into a loaded position, allowing her to generate plus bat speed and power. She shows excellent balance, both in her pre-pitch set-up and throughout the course of her swing. She has a short stride which allows her to keep her head still and make consistent, hard contact. As she's able to achieve better weight transfer and get her lower half a bit more involved, she will hit the ball with even more power. Defensively, Madison shows off a powerful, quick arm that translates well from the left side of the diamond. All of her throws were accurate to 1B. Her glove plays soft and she is sure-handed. With work on getting deeper into her fielding position and gaining more ground to her target with her feet, Madison will continue to develop into a solid infielder. Madison has a coachable demeanor and is willing to work hard toward her goals of playing college softball.
