Fall Open ID with TPA: Quick Hitters

Brandon Hall & Matt Payne
NC Executive Director & Scouting Director

The PBR scouting staff was at Campbell University on Sunday November 11th to run an Open ID event powered by The Performance Academy.  The event was open to all players and TPA used the event to run a tryout for their upcoming summer season.

With over 60 players in attendance, PBR gathered a lot of stats and information.  Players ran through a full pro-style workout including a laser timed 60, multiple offensive rotations, and a full defensive workout.  Pitchers threw a controlled bullpen with scouts marking down velocity and spin rates on each arm. 

PBR begins to breakdown the event and the players in attendance with a “Quick Hitters” story.  The idea of the “Quick Hitters” is to give PBR Scouts a chance to give quick bursts of ideas on players that may have caught their attention during the workout.  PBR Scouts will continue to break down the event and stats from the event in the coming week.
