PG World Series Notes: Day 1
Sal Stewart (2022, Miami, Fla.) picked up right where he left off in the 14u WWBA earlier this summer as he once again showed a knack for reaching via a base hit, finishing the opening day of the 14u World Series with a 2-for-3 day. Physically built at 6-foot-1, 180-pounds already, Stewart shows an advanced understanding in the box, from understanding what the opposing pitcher is trying to sequence to his ability to recognize spin, all elements that help lead to consistent barreled contact. His swing is a balanced one and it offers plenty of present bat speed and strength to his hands as he managed to pick up a single over the first baseman’s head despite getting jammed before barreling a hard ground ball through the six-hole. Stewart moves well over at third base too, showing range to his left and quick feet charging in just as he put on display with a quick transfer and release on a slow chopper to get the running trying to score from third.
