Forrestt Allday puts every bit of concentration and energy into each at-bat. This skilled hitter quite simply is not in the business of giving away plate appearances. He aggravates opposing pitchers, working deep into counts and posts some astonishing On-Base Percentage numbers. In his two years at Central Arkansas, he ranks as one of the best in the nation in terms of batting average and the aforementioned OBP. Allday’s stellar hand-eye coordination will be an asset to the organization that selects him in June’s MLB Draft. A laser-like focused player like Allday takes well to coaching and he is a relentless worker. Here are my notes on Allday prior to watching him play summer ball:
