07/23/2017 - Baseball Factory National World Series at Pirate City - Session 2 (Ages 12-14) Tanner is a lean, athletic catcher who has a tremendous future on the diamond. At the plate, is where he shows best, displaying solid hitting / power potential through athletic setup. Hands are quick and work through level swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields with gap-to-gap pop. Behind the plate, feet are active as he works in line through a clean transfer / exchange. Pop times showed in the 2.46 range with accuracy on his throws. Times will continue to drop as he works to get rid of the baseball quicker and builds more arm strength. Glove action is soft and sticks ball well through the receiving process. He utilizes his body well through the blocking process but needs to increase quickness and get body down sooner to improve grade. Mental makeup is a plus as he is very coachable and plays the game hard. With 5 years to further develop, Tanner has the makings of a special type player with time and room to progress his game.
