A pair of infielders stood out in terms of strike zone knowledge and plate discipline, among other things. Easton Rockets 18 junior infielder Tyler Frank (American Heritage HS) has a mature patient approach, along with a coordinated stroke and an excellent glove at third base. Though he’s a couple of years younger than Frank, Florida Legends 2017 Freddy Zamora stood out for many of the same reasons. He’s patient enough to look for a good pitch to hit, and has the ability to drive it with authority when he gets it. He’s a special young player, with a combination of natural talent and an advanced feel for the game.
Though you wouldn’t know it from looking at him, Easton Rockets 16 two-way guy Kristopher Armstrong hasn’t started high school yet. Only a 2018 graduate, he stands at 6-foot-3 and 185 pounds with great baseball bloodlines – his father Jack reached the major leagues just one year after he was the Reds first round pick, and went on to pitch for parts of six more seasons in the big leagues. Kristopher appears to have an advanced feel for hitting a young age from both sides of the plate, and is already physical enough to drive the ball past the outfielders with a wood bat at his young age.
