Tyler Hanover is a 2008 MIF/3B with a 5'7'', 165 lb. frame from Kernersville, NC who attends East Forsyth HS. He has a short, compact build with very good present strength. Hanover is an excellent defensive second baseman. He's always played second at PG/WWBA events but has the type of physical tools/skills that will most often play shortstop at this level. He has loads of arm strength, very quick feet and gets rid of the ball quickly. He'd outstanding getting to balls up the middle and getting outs because of his arm strength and quickness. Offensively, Hanover is a very aggressive hitter with surprising pop for his size. His power is sometimes his undoing, as his swing can get long at times as he gets out of his envelope. He's best when he stays short and quick and takes what the pitcher gives him and lines it hard somewhere instead of going hunting for something he can lift. Hanover is a terror on the bases. He isn't a blazer with his speed but is very quick and hyper aggressive. He'll create errors and take every extra base available. No one underestimates Hanover due to his size anymore. The key to his future will be his offensive approach. He's one of the ultimate gamers at this level and leaves everything on the field. He has a verbal commitment to LSU.
