Commonwealth Baseball Club: Scout Day Complete Results and Top Statistical Performers


Chris Fuller
Kentucky Director of Scouting

The Commonwealth Baseball Club held its fall PBR Scout Day on Sunday, October 7 at Henry Clay High School in Lexington. This is a newly formed organization that combines the Bluegrass Xpress and Lexington Grays into one. A total of 62 players from the organization participated in the event, which included many first-time PBR participants and some returners looking to upgrade their measurables from previous events.

Videos from the event are currently being edited, and profiles are in the process of being created and updated.
