On January 29, 2022, the PBR Colorado team hosted the 970 Sun Devils Scout Day in what we call the Barnstormer Scout Day. This unique opportunity is available for all clubs or high school teams. The event featured hitting, pitching and infield/outfield velos, allowing players to update their profiles with new data.

The 970 Sun Devils showcased good players across the board all the way from the 2022 class, to some intriguing 2025 prospects. We continue our post-event coverage by taking a look at the top pitching performances from last weekend with help from our TrackMan data.
