PBR Scout Day: 5 Star - Data Dive, Position Players
June 21, 2023
On June 14th, we hosted 5 Star at LakePoint Sports for a scout day. This event featured 30 prospects, predominantly from Georgia, and it provided our staff with an in-depth look at some high-follow players who were making their PBR event debut in the process.
Inside today’s Position Player Data dive we will highlight the players with top metrics per Trackman, Swift, and Blast.
Last week, we broke down the stat leaders from the more traditional categories in our statistical analysis. Today, we will take an even closer look at the position players in attendance with the help of our tech partners, broken down by the categories and leaderboards below.

Traditionally, the 60-yard dash has been the in-event standard to help measure a player's speed tool. While the measurement still has its utility, the 10-yard split has started to become more and more applicable in determining the player's burst and reaction time in-game, whether that's in the outfield or on the basepaths.
