2019 PBR ProCase Evaluations: First Basemen


Brandon Hall & Matt Payne
North Carolina Director of Scouting & PBR Assoc Scout

Sunday February 10th saw 25 of the top players in the 2019 and 2020 classes in North Carolina converge on Kernersville, NC and the Diamond Xtreme athletics facility.  In front of over 25 professional scouts, each player had his chance to show his skills in the pro-style workout.

By any measure, the 2019 ProCase was a huge success for all involved.  Four first-basemen took part in the day.  Each is physical and showed athleticism with strength in the swing.  Below we break down each player with video from their workout at the ProCase.

Below are the complete evaluations and video from each player's day at the PBR Procase.  We will continue posting the evaluations in the coming days of the top players in North Carolina who attended the prestigious PBR ProCase.
