02/03/2013 - College PREP - San Diego, CA Samantha is a developed athlete. As a C, she has an accurate arm, she is athletic with strong legs and soft/sure glove work, a low set up that enhances blocking skills (good angles), and she understands the position (natural instincts). Focusing on solid framing (too much sway), glove awareness (leans and falls on glove on throw downs), gaining ground when blocking, glove side throw downs to bases, and staying low on throw downs (pops up) will enhance her skill set behind the plate. As a hitter, she has a short bat path, a balanced set up, and is a strong hitter to all playing fields. Focusing on waiting for the pitch to travel in the zone (over and early), utilizing the lower half (inconsistent), keeping her head on contact (head flies open), and driving hands through the zone (wraps bat) will increase her consistency, efficiency and power at the plate. As Samantha continues to develop and mature through application and experience, her skill set will continue to flourish and attract the attention of collegiate programs.
