05/25/2013 - Little League® Experience - S. Williamsport Tyler is a young player who is hard-nosed and plays the game tough. Behind the plate, he received and blocked the ball well. He is not afraid to sacrifice his body to block the baseball. He showed a short, over-the-top throwing motion with accuracy and good life. He can continue to soften up his hands receiving, and work on his footwork and follow through on throws to second. He also displayed his intelligence for calling pitches and managing the game from behind the plate. On the mound, he throws strikes and works down in the zone. He has a tendency to rush through his balance point which causes his arm to drag. Offensively, he has a tall stance and shows rhythm in his swing. He has fast bat speed and gets his lower half through creating hard contact. He needs to develop a load, and work on separating his stride from his swing which will center his balance. Overall, Tyler is a gamer and a kid who leads by example by playing the game hard.
