Gabe Pankonin, who will be a senior at Perham High School, recently participated in the Atlanta Braves tryout camp in Minnetonka, Minn. Pankonin, who is a switch-hitting catcher for Perham's baseball team, was invited to participate in the camp that was held Aug. 4.


Activities at the camp centered around 60-100 yard dashes, batting and pop times.

Pop times are the measurements of when a pitch hits the catcher's glove and his throw to the second baseman's glove.
