Kristin Worley Full Evaluation - D1 level player
Offense
Strengths
Smooth swing, very fluid
- Power is good and a good follow through
- Efficient take-off speed to first on bunt and hit both.  SS expected to have good speed and be smart baserunners
Areas for Improvement
Keep head down on swing - try not to watch where the ball goes off the bat.
- Need more leg drive and power coming from the lower half.  By engaging the lower body more it will increase the explosiveness of the hands on contact and allow for even better contact.
- Swing was same speed throughout - even on a pitching machine, need to explode on contact and DRIVE the ball
- Move pitch location around to showcase ability to hit to all fields
 
Defense
Strengths
Excellent field range with both backhand and forehand
- Arm strength and accuracy of throws was good
- Loved the hustle between balls and getting back in to a ready position
- Good range in outfield and ball tracking
Areas for Improvement
Follow-through more with body on throws (dont stop so hard on the left foot, it causes the body to jolt backwards and actually takes speed off the ball)
- Over exaggerate the crow hop on the outfield throw
- Catch fly balls over the nose or shoulder rather than at the chest
 

I see a lot of great potential in Kristin and think she will be a good impact player at the D1 level. A lot of the the improvements I have listed are easy fixes and will certainly be a focus in daily practice.  They are just tweaks that will really set her level of play a part from others her age.  They are signs of maturity as a player and the sooner you can master those little things the more attractive you will be to college coaches.
