Carter is as deserving of this player of the month honor as he is a private room at the facility.  Over the past 4 months, there hasn’t been many days in which Carter wasn’t in the house and working on his game with us.  As a participant in phases one and two of our winter hitting and throwing programs, as well as the February Fielders defensive work, Carter has continued to put in the time and effort in order to fully prepare himself and get the most out of his ability.  While not a big guy, Carter’s skills are exceptional and are supplemented by his knowledge of the game and ability to recognize adjustments that need to be made and make them.  Carter is very coachable and has the ability to take what he hears and implement it into his own processes without having to have his hand held.  Carter has been training with us basically since our inception, having been involved with a lot of group defensive work over the last couple years as well as one on one hitting work.  There are never any days where Carter shows up not ready to get to work, and this blue collar mindset is what will continue to propel him forward in his baseball career.  We are lucky to have Carter with us, and can’t wait to see where this continued work takes him.  Learn a little more about Carter below.
