11/11/2010 - Pirate City Select Training Landon is a young, athletic, medium built Catcher who will graduate in 2013. Behind the plate, Landon has good pre-pitch actions, he receives the ball well, and blocks very well. He is a good vocal leader, works well with his Pitchers, and can run the defense with confidence as he is an above average defensive catcher for his age. Abilities behind the plate can improve if Landon can set up closer, look the ball into his glove better, and add arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, Landon is an aggressive hitter with a level swing path. He has a short / compact swing, he can spray to all fields, and he puts the ball in play. Landon will improve offensively with better strike zone awareness, staying back on the ball, and with better use of his lower 1/2. Landon is a great kid who caught every inning at the event with great energy!
