9/15/14 - Baker is a physical 6-foot-2, 185-pound right-hand hitting corner infielder and four-hole hitter for a talented KC Bullets team.  He’s a sure-handed defender at both corner infield spots.  At the plate, he showed bat speed, a middle of the field approach and understanding of the strike zone, rarely expanding the zone on borderline pitches.  On the weekend he went 7-for-12 at the plate and collected a pair of walks.
4/18/14 - Baker is a strong, athletic-framed 6-foot-2, 185-pound corner infielder that possesses overall strength with plenty of room to fill out. He is an two-sport athlete with a strong lower half and wide shoulders.  He is slowly being mixed back into North’s everyday line-up after sustaining a season-ending injury last year.  Currently he is their first baseman and 3-hole hitter.  At first base he showed first step quickness, athletic actions and balance.  He has good lateral quickness and range that he showed during the game including ranging to the fence to make a foul ball catch.  His sure hands enabled him to pick throws that were low or pulled him off the bag as he maintained control and proper footwork around the bag.  Throwing from a three-quarter slot with a loose, easy motion his ball has carry and accuracy even though he isn’t throwing to his full capability yet.  At the plate the right-hand hitter has an athletic, balanced stance with a smooth hand load and quick hands. Baker uses a toe tap timing mechanism with a short stride.  He had 3-for-4 day with back-spinned hard hit line drive singles. He ran a 4.62 home-to-1B on a turn with playable speed on the bases that seems to get better once he gets going.
