TN/KY Border Battle: Statistical Analysis


PBR Staff
PBR Tennessee/ PBR Kentucky

The Tennessee and Kentucky Fall premier event, the 5th annual TN/KY Border Battle, did not disappoint in 2020.  Nearly 80 total prospects represented the Volunteer and Bluegrass state at Bowling Green Ballpark, home of the Bowling Green Hot Rods, which covered two days of showcases and gameplay for some of the top prospects to display their skills and earn state bragging rights.  All four games were tight, back-and forth ballgames between two hungry ball clubs coming down to late game execution. Below, we take a look at the statistical leaders from the TN/KY Border Battle with position player stats coming from the showcase portion and pitching stats from live gameplay.
