OVERALL Position Projection: LHP
11/18/2012 - College PREP - Orange, CA Olivia is a young, athletic LHP with an advanced skill set. In the circle, she features a full arm swing with forward hand position and displays good rhythm at times as she stays in line thru an athletic finish. She will benefit from continuing to improve arm strength as well as the strength in her lower half to be as explosive as possible off the rubber. Her effectiveness will improve as her fastball command does because everything works off of the fastball arm speed. At the plate, Olivia uses square set up with an arm-bar load, short stride and has a slightly uphill path to the ball. She should focus on improving her load (no wrap), stride (don't step closed) and her bat path after contact (stay thru ball) to create extension and carry. She has good rhythm in the box and has advanced hand eye coordination which will help her to make adjustments quickly as she progresses on both sides of the ball. Overall, Olivia is a very talented young lady with a lot of potential.
