06/20/2016 - Softball Factory World Series Sydney is a 2018 short stop with a well-balanced skill set. Defensively, Sydney has good pre pitch movement and shows great effort at her position. She fields the ball out in front and makes on-line, accurate throws to her target. By working more from the ground up in the infield and staying more fluid with her momentum, Sydney will become more effective at her position. Offensively, Sydney has a square set up with a soft stride and hits from the left side of the plate. She has a good presence in the box and uses her body well throughout her swing. Sydney launches on time to contact and works line drives gap to gap. She has a level swing and takes a direct route to the ball. Sydney extends well through the ball and has good rotation in her core. By working on staying more lateral through the zone and keeping that front shoulder in, Sydney will become more of a consistent threat at the plate. Overall, Sydney is a coachable athlete that will make the improvements needed to play at the next level.
