04/15/2017 - Interactive Video Program - Hattiesburg, MS Gannon is a tall, lean OF/1B. Defensively in the OF, he displays active footwork and is agile to his glove hand side as he tracks down fly balls. He gets behind the ball and comes up firing with strong/accurate throws to his target. Over at 1B, he attacks the GB and gets into an athletic/low fielding position. He presents his hands out in front and has a clean exchange to throw. At the plate, Gannon presents a smooth rhythm to load. He whips his barrel quickly through the zone as he creates hard contact with each pitch. Overall abilities in his game will improve with work on the following.
Infield 1. Smooth backhand glove 2. Quicker exchange to throw 3. Lateral range Outfield 1. Catch with 2 hands 2. Play through the ball 3. Arm strength (long toss) Offense 1. More athletic setup 2. Lower 1/2 drive 3. Extend through contact
