On Sunday August 27th, the CBA Copperhead organization held their PBR Scout Day at Pfeiffer University in Misenheimer, NC.  A gorgeous day, the Copperhead players ran through a full workout in front of PBR's staff and college coaches. 

Right out of the gate, noise was made with Christian Thomas (2020, OF, Central Cabarrus HS) running a 6.59 on the PBR North Carolina laser timed sixty.  Carter Sheppard (2019, OF/RHP, Lake Norman HS) had a strong day, appearing at, or near the top, of several statistical categories.  Adam Dempski (2018, OF, Hough HS) had a good days as well.

Each position player ran through a full style workout, running a sixty, taking a live BP on the field, and going through an individual defensive workout.  Statistics were taken on exit velocity off the bat, arm speed from the defensive position, and pop times for catchers.  Pitchers threw a controlled bullpen for PBR staff and coaches, allowing them to feature their repertoire, showing stuff and command. Each player attending the scout day will have their PBR profile updated with their updated statistics, an evaluation, and video from the workout.
