As a former MLB player, I’ve had the pleasure to work with Thomas Donovan on hitting instruction that began in November 2020.  What I like to see is not only the physical attributes but the mental capacity and awareness as well.  Being able to take instruction and implement quickly and make adjustments when needed.  Have an unwavering work ethic and a committed passion for the game.  I believe hitting to be the most challenging aspect.  We may have to adjust from day to day, at bat to at bat or pitch to pitch. From having retained instruction and repetition of proper mechanics; one would be able to compete successfully with the action of a pitched baseball. 

With over a couple dozen instructions to date Thomas has made great progress.  Very coachable and a team player that is eager to contribute wherever and whenever he can.  Respectful, hard worker on and off the field with great baseball instincts.  He will continue to mature, get stronger and improve all skills.  Thomas would be a great asset to any program.

Thomas Donovan is a hustler, has a strong work ethic, commitment to his team and a desire to progress to the next level. His speed, exit velocity, arm strength and skills have all accelerated over the past year. His key goals in 2022 are to sustain academic achievement, become the best baseball player he can be and continue to develop the skills required to play baseball at the college level.

Thomas Donovan: A versatile player who can excel at many different positions on the field. He has raw power at the plate which is showing up more consistently as he learns to cut down on swing & misses.  His improved approach to the opposite field is encouraging as well. Thomas’s athleticism and footwork will give him a strong chance to stay in the infield at the next level.

His arm has gotten stronger over the last year as well, which allows him to compete for SS and 3b spots. We are excited to watch Thomas continue to develop over the next 2 years. As his body matures and continues to get stronger, we believe balls in the gap will become homeruns allowing him to be a middle of the order guy. Thomas is also one of the hardest working players we have coached over the years and is a great teammate.
