C35 Scout Day: Trackman Hitting Analytics

Matt Payne
Director of Scouting, PBR of NC

PBR of North Carolina was on hand at Jim Perry Stadium on the campus of Campbell University on Thursday August 19th for a scout day with C35. Players ranged from the 2022-2025 grad classes. 

The evening began with catchers going through a defensive evaluation followed by Pitchers throwing a controlled bullpen of 15-20 pitches with Trackman gathering advanced analytics. After the bullpens the position players ran a laser timed 60, followed by batting practice with Trackman gathering ball flight data. Due to rain and storms passing through, batting practice had to be moved indoors. 

Below we take a look at some of the numbers collected throughout the evening. CLICK HERE to see the full roster and statistical output.
