OVERALL Position Projection:
12/27/2020 - Softball Factory Christmas Camp & Tournament - Prospects Samantha continues to show as a prospect on the field. Behind the dish, she presents a soft/sure mitt showing great pocket awareness sticking pitches. She uses her body well through the blocking process, centering balls well out front. Pop times showed in the 2.0 range with accuracy to her target. At the plate, she continues to shine through an athletic setup. Hands are quick (65 mph exit velocity) and work to and through a level swing path. She shows a feel for the barrel through a line drive approach, utilizing the middle of the field well. At the event, she had a great tournament, going 9 for 10 with a 2B and 3 BB. Mental makeup is a plus as she is very coachable and works hard to be the best player she can be.
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.
