10/06/2023 - Official College Recruiting Membership - Clearwater, FL This is our third time seeing Claire in the last 5 months. She continues to impress. She is a strong, physical player. Her grip strength went up 21 pounds on her left hand and 18 pounds on her right hand. We continue to see the ball explode off her barrel and a lot of this is due to her hand/grip strength. She is short to the ball in the box and has excellent barrel control. At first base, she displays sound defensive actions with a clean exchange from glove to hand. In the circle, she threw a fastball, curveball, changeup and drop ball. She has a calm presence on the mound and gets excellent extension on each of her pitches. Claire continues to be one to watch as we inch closer to her high school career.
06/01/2023 - Softball Factory College World Series - Futures Select Training Claire is a 2028 grad who pitches and plays first base. She has controlled mechanics and hit a top speed of 53MPH with her fastball. At first base, she has clean fielding mechanics and receives the ball out front. In the box, Claire has a strong lower half and uses her body well. She has an athletic setup and activated load. She has controlled mechanics and makes hard contact producing a 65MPH exit velocity. Overall, Claire has solid fundamentals and the ability to elevate her game to the next level.
05/19/2023 - Official College Recruiting Membership - Orlando, FL This 2028 graduate impressed in her time with Softball Factory. Currently seen as a dual player with gifts on both sides of the ball. Her strong base is evidenced by her 6'2" broad jump which is well above average for a 13 year old. Defensively, she provides a solid target with flexibility. We would like to see her finish her throws with more follow through to help gain more carry. At the plate, she utilizes her leg strength to provide a foundation with plus balance. She keeps her head still, flashes quick hands and gets extension through the softball with exit velocities as high as 67mph. In the circle, she went as high as 50mph and flashed a three pitch mix with a free and easy arm action. In addition, she came across as relaxed and confident. With five more years of softball in front of her before she heads off to college, we can get excited about the places she can go.
