Brent Tanner officially became a professional baseball player on Tuesday afternoon.

Tanner, the former George County High School and South Alabama catcher, went through his first practice with the Great Falls (Mont.) Voyagers of the Pioneer League Tuesday. The Voyagers are the Rookie League affiliate of the Chicago White Sox, who selected Tanner in the 32nd round of the major league draft last Wednesday.

… The 23-year-old Tanner has scarcely stopped moving since draft day. He signed with the White Sox on Friday, left for Great Falls on Sunday, arrived in town on Monday night and hit the practice field Tuesday afternoon
