02/10/2013 - College PREP - Sacramento, CA Samantha has a chance to be a big time player. Defensively, she has soft, sure hands with fluid footwork and a strong, accurate arm with a quick release. She has a consistent active pre-pitch prep step, a strong arm with a clean arm slot and has an advanced understanding of the SS position for her age. She will benefit from improving her glove position further out front with fingers down, improving DP feeds and staying loose/smooth through exchange & release phase of the routine play. At the plate, Samantha uses a square set up with a back load, strait stride and centered balance before generating quick bat speed through the zone. Uphill at times, her swing recovers to make hard contact to all fields and she will see improvements to her power production/overall quality of contact as she commits to tracking the ball with her chin to contact. Samantha shows solid power and a good understanding of keeping the bat through the zone after contact to get her hands extended, ultimately creating back spin/carry and simply needs to keep playing at the highest level possible to be properly challenged. Overall, Samantha has a ton of potential and needs to stay committed/ healthy to reach her full potential, at this point the sky is the limit.
