He dives for no reason what so ever

pointless dives
Danny Boy
No need for the dives...took him time to throw the ball...

He's good for a eleven year old just think how many 11 year olds do you know that could do that. He's got hustle and the determination.

he should work on getting the ball out of his mitt a little quicker so he only needs to take one crow hop instead of three when he makes a strong throw to first.  You take that many steps on a slow ground ball in college you better have an arm like Rafael Furcal (for those that remember him).  He used to wing it about 95mph across the diamond.  For those of us mere mortals, we should make up for our lack of velocity by working on our glove to release time.  You can float the ball over to first when that gets quick.  When you make the game look easy and effortless scouts pay more attention to you.  If it looks like you are working too hard or exerting too much energy while fielding a routine ground ball he might become concerned you are a potential burn out or injury liability.  Pro and even college baseball requires lots of repetition.  Pros play 161 games in just their regular season.  Arms, limbs, and bodies become sore and tight a quarter of the way through the season.  If you can make the same play as your competition by using less energy or burning less calories, and without loosing speed you will be the higher draft choice.  Especially if you can demonstrate more swagger and finess than the other guy.  This kid is young too.  You don't want him to stress his growing body too much.  Keep him out of the weight room until his growth plates have reached their full potential.  keep him stretching more and more instead so he is tall and agile when he finally comes of age.  If he looks like Tulowitski vs a shorter and more broad Furcal he will look better than the other guy at any position he plays.  Style counts as even the losing teams need to keep people in the seats omehow.  They call it the Show for a reason.

Good alright but your an 11 year old your not supposed to play like a major leaguer that's gonna bust up your arm and watch some college take notes because that's really how you should play baseball until u actually possibly made it to the major leagues
