34 players from across the Old Line State, Delaware and Virginia participated in a pro-style workout and threw bullpens in front of our PBR Maryland staff at this year's Summer Trials at the Metrix Baseball Training Facility. It was the first event since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic that caused the cancellation of everyone's high school baseball seasons this Spring. On hand for the first time at a PBR Maryland event was TrackMan and Blast giving players unrivaled access to their data performances. Below are evaluations on the ten outfielders from the event.
