Quick Hitters: Mooresville Prospect ID - Position Players


Matt Payne
Director of Scouting, PBR of NC

PBR was at Moor Park in Mooresville, NC on Wednesday September 16th to run a Prospect ID.  The day consisted of 35 players from across North Carolina running through a full pro-style workout, with pitchers throwing controlled bullpens.

The workout began with a laser timed 60, followed by offensive and defensive evaluations.  Pitchers threw bullpens to conclude the night.  Throughout the day, PBR Scouts were on hand to collect statistics and video on each player in attendance.  TrackMan was used during the offensive evaluations and the pitchers' bullpens to collect ball flight information.

Below we highlight some of the position players who stood out during their pro-style workout.
