“Tanner” is a ballist whose playing ability is matched only by his manners and gentlemanly play. That being said, he is player of the highest degree. He shows a great deal of ginger and vim on the bases and as a fieldsman, and no player shows more sand than he. He is the gentleman that all mothers would love to have as a son, and all of the fathers as their favorite ballist.
Tanner was named the “Most Valuable Ballist” for the year 05, and followed it up with another fantastic season in 06 leading the club in runs.
