09/06/2020 - Official College Recruiting Membership - Frisco (DFW), TX Samantha is an athletic catcher who has a promising future. Behind the dish, she presents a soft/sure mitt showing great pocket awareness sticking pitches. Quick lateral movements allow her to center/deaden pitches in the dirt off of a soft chest. Pop times showed a range of 1.70-2.19. Offensively, she continues to shine through a squared setup. She has athletic/smooth actions with fluid rhythm to load. She gets good hand separation and delivers the barrel with leverage, resulting in a barrel explosion (59 mph exit velocity) with power showing best to the pull side. Power will increase as she utilizes her lower half more efficiently. With 3 years to further develop, Samantha has potential with time and room to progress her game.
