South Alabama Preseason All-State: Statistical Leaders


PBR Alabama Staff

The South Alabama Preseason All-State was held this past Sunday, January 23rd at The Performance Lab Training Facility in Mobile, AL. This event consisted of some of the top players ranging from the classes of 2022-2026. These players went through an extended pro-style workout and took batting practice using Trackman and Blast Motion sensors. Pitchers were able to throw in simulated bullpens and were able to get numbers and metrics off of our Trackman unit, such as pitch velocity, spin rate, horizontal & vertical movement & much more. There were some players who showed up and continued to build off of prior performances, but there were also some new names who jumped onto our radar with a strong showing on Sunday.

We continue our post-event coverage today by taking a look at those players that performed at the top of the individual performance categories. Please continue to check back over the next few weeks as we will release individual scouting reports on each player present at the event.
