07/30/2014 - Baseball Factory National World Series at Pirate City - Session 1
Ryan showed his best ability to date in the tournament setting at the Baseball Factory Pirate City World Series. Defensively in the OF, he made the routine plays, getting to the ball quickly with good body control. He worked to improve his first step back and to eliminate drift on fly balls. At 3B, he made plays out in front with quick feet and threw with some fluidity. More reps and agility drills with improve infield play. Offensively, he got to a good hitting position with activated hands and had good rhythm to deliver the barrel. He tracked the ball well and kept his head fairly still leading to good barrel accuracy. He generated very good bat speed but needs to work on extension through contact to stay with a line-drive approach. All in all - Ryan is a sound player with consistent play on both sides of the ball.
10/06/2013 - National Tryout - Trenton, NJ
Ryan continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities. Foot speed has improved as he ran his best 60 time to date, now a 7.53 runner. He utilizes his feet well as he works to square balls up and presents his hands well out front, displaying clean hands. For defensive grade to continue to improve, he needs to attack ground balls more and play through with his body. He gets rid of the baseball quickly with accuracy on his throws but will benefit by building more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, Gallow shows a balanced, quiet setup. Hands are loose and works through a level swing path. He makes consistent contact, mainly to the pull side. For hitting grades to continue to improve, he needs to work to keep hands inside the ball to utilize all fields. Power numbers will continue to improve as he learns to use his lower half more.
