05/25/2013 - Little League® Experience - S. Williamsport Tanner, is a solid player who showed good knowledge of the game. He played multiple positions and showed good body control at each position. Behind the plate, he has sure hands with active feet. His fielding position is square but can work on his overall blocking ability to improve catching grades. On the mound, he displayed good mechanics reaching a controlled balance point, separation was on time and his shoulders stayed in line with his target. Pitching grades will improve as he works on completing his delivery focusing on finishing towards his target instead of to the first base side. At the plate, Tanner has good fundamentals starting with a strong load and balance. His contact is consistently hard with a short swing path and line drive type power. Tanner can work on the consistency of his lower half making sure that his backside finished heel over toe.
