InsideTheDome: What would you consider Kevin's strongest aspect in his game?
Jeremy York: I think Kevin's strengths is his bat and ability to hit. He is very selective at the plate and really has a great understanding of the strike zone.
InsideTheDome: As he's about to enter professional baseball, is there a particular aspect of his game which you think he needs to focus on right now?
Jeremy York: The mental part will be the biggest adjustment. He is about to play baseball every single day and the grind of the bus rides , playing every night will be something that he will have to make an adjustment to.
InsideTheDome: What adjustments has he made in his game this season, which you think has contributed most to his success?
Jeremy York: His ability to switch hit. He really struggled at the beginning of last season swinging the bat on the left side. So much so that we asked him to stay on the right side. He worked extremely hard in the summer and the off season to develop his swing from the left side and that has contributed greatly to his success.
InsideTheDome: Talk about his defense a little and what position you envision him playing in pro ball?
Jeremy York: Kevin is a top notch defensive player. He has a very, very strong arm
and is athletic enough to play either Short stop or 3rd base. He made
some outstanding plays at shortstop this season and I think he is one
heck of a short stop. However, I think he could play 3rd if they think
he needs to make that move.
