PBR at The Performance Lab: Preview


Austin Sharp
Alabama Scouting Director

The PBR at The Performance Lab event will be held this Tuesday at The Performance Lab in Mobile, AL. Some talented 2022-2025 prospects in the state of Alabama will be in attendance, looking to impress in front of some of college coaches who will be in attendance with the NCAA dead period recently being lifted. CLICK HERE to view the roster for this event.

Our staff will be using this event to select players to represent Alabama at the 2021 PBR Future Games & PBR Jr. Future Games. The Future Games is the summer's ultimate recruiting event for 2023 and 2024 uncommitted prospects. Last year's event was attended by more than 300 college coaches. This event will take place July 29 - August 1 at LakePoint in Cartersville, GA. Last year's PBR Future Games team featured 13 players from this 2020 Top Prospect Games, and this year should be no different.

Upon arriving and getting checked in at 8:15-8:40 AM, position players will go through a pro-style workout, and then take batting practice before taking place in gameplay against pitchers. During batting practice, players will be using our Blast Motion sensors, as well as a Trackman B1 Unit to record numbers that will be imported into their profiles for college coaches to see.
