NC Prospect ID Statistical Analysis


Brandon Hall
North Carolina Director of Scouting

PBR opened its summer evaluations with an open prospect event at the beautiful Ultimate Performance complex in Matthews, NC on Thursday May 23rd.  Close to 40 players took part in the open pro-style workout with PBR scouts on hand to evaluate players and record their stats while going through the workout. 

The event featured players as part of the open North Carolina Prospect ID and the PBR Scout Day with Ultimate Performance.  Today we break down the statistics gathered from the event, looking at the top performers in each category.  To see the full list of statistics gathered during the workout, for every player in attendance, CLICK HERE (NC Prospect ID) and HERE (Ultimate Performance Scout Day).

Top Positional Velocity - Infielders

The size and space of the Ultimate Performance facility allows infielders to simulate a live ground ball and a throw across the field.  Batted balls traveled approximately 100 feet where the infielders were able to transition the baseball into a 100 foot throw, allowing scouts to see carry, accuracy, and arm strength.  Below are the top recorded arm strength numbers from the event.
