LATEST PG SHOWCASE REPORT
2020 Midwest Top Prospect Games  
Gehrig Christensen is a 2021 C with a 6-1 175 lb. frame from Des Moines, IA who attends Urbandale. Medium athletic build with lots of room to get stronger. Very athletic with good speed for a primary catcher, 6.86 in the sixty, was very aggressive on the bases during the games with his speed. Shows that athleticism very well behind the plate, quick actions and transitions, big arm strength on his throws, can get off balance with a long stride out front at times, high level defensive tools. Left handed hitter, starts from a small open stance with a high back elbow load, best swings were when he got the elbow down on time and created a level swing, flashed good bat speed at those times. Projection and defensive potential stand out on a left handed hitting catcher. Good student, verbal commitment to Iowa. Named to the Midwest Top Prospect Games Top Prospect List.
