On Saturday November 19th  PBR invaded Fayetteville and settled at Pine Forest High School for the Fayetteville Prospect Open.  An event that was originally scheduled for September, but was moved due to the flooding with Hurricane Matthew.  The late date did not prevent several players from putting together impressive workouts, including a couple of repeat players from earlier events, besting their statistical results.  Below is a brief look at some of the statistical information from the event.  More information will be posted throughout the week, with future events being announced as well.

 

STATISTICAL HIGHLIGHTS

+  1 player from each of the 2017 and 2021 classes in attendance

+  3 catchers posted Pop Times below 2.10
