PBR California Staff

New Episode LIVE now! At The Yard Podcast

LINCOLN, CALIF. - The Rising Stars ID tour was completed last Sunday in Northern California at McBean Stadium. The event hosted players in the 2027 and 2028, some who no doubt attended with the intent to show they’re deserving to be considered to represent Team California at the Prep Baseball Report Jr. Future Games in LakePoint, GA. 

This July, PBR California will be taking a team to the Jr. Future Games for the first time. This unique event is run in conjunction with, and at the same facility as, the Future Games which last year hosted over 360 college coaches. Adding to the spectacle is the uniqueness of the event being open to uncommitted players only. 

The Rising Stars ID series serves as a springboard for players looking to be a part of the best event in the country for uncommitted players, and the Bay Area event certainly did not disappoint with as many players having strong performances in what was the first showcase setting for many of them. 

Players were put through the traditional showcase workout that included the 60-yard dash, Bullpens, BP, and a defensive workout using Trackman, Swift Technologies, and more to measure every movement. 

We earlier highlighted some early standouts in Quick HitsTrackMan Pitching, Running/Throwing Stats, & and in this post we’ll break down the TrackMan Hitting stats from the Rising Stars ID: Sacramento.

Prep Baseball Report events across the country have been powered by TrackMan’s industry-leading Portable system to capture pinpoint accurate, actionable data from player performances. Prep Baseball Report and Trackman are dedicated to recognizing talent and unleashing their potential.

All hitters had a chance to be evaluated through our portable Trackman unit. Each player received a round of on the field BP where they were measured in key ball flight metrics. We were able to collect key ball flight metrics such as exit velocity, distance, launch angles, spray charts and much more.  

PBR was able to collect data on many uncommitted players around the states that is sharable with coaches & scouts as well as help players identify areas of development for the future.

Exit Velocity

The velocity of the ball as soon as it releases from contact with the bat. This metric coupled with launch angle are the two most important implications for distance.
