PBR of North Carolina hosted the Elite South ID on Friday September 16th at the Tuckaseegee Field of Dreams in Charlotte, NC. The event gave players an opportunity to update their stats and video prior to the Elite South Showcase Tournament over the weekend. The ID featured players from the 2023-2026 Classes.

The evening began with position players running a laser timed 60 followed by batting practice on the field with Trackman collecting data. After batting practice players went through a defensive evaluation. The night concluded with pitchers throwing a controlled bullpen with Trackman collecting advanced analytics.

HARD HIT PERCENTAGE

TrackMan is able to track and follow exit velocities of each hitter.  Based on the individual's top exit velocity, TrackMan is able to give us a percentage of hard hit balls.  This percentage is based off of each individual hitter's top exit velocity.

Rank Name State School Class Pos Hard Hit %
1 Daniel Shuta NC Myers Park 2023 OF 37 %
^ Landon Sutton NC Wayne Country Day 2025 C 37 %

LAUNCH ANGLE PERCENTAGE

Based on the ball flight, TrackMan is able to identify each hit as a ground ball, line drive, or fly ball.  While there are many factors as to why a hitter may approach each pitch in a certain way, the overall groupings of BP can give some insight to each hitter's approach.

Line Drive %

Average Effective Velocity

Effective velocity is taking into account the velocity of each pitch, its release distance, the pitches time to the plate / hitting area, and the pitches movement. With all of this information, Effective Velocity is allowing coaches and scouts to more accurately compare how a pitch is affecting a hitter.
