Player Evals: Winter Kickoff ID-2021 & 2022 Position Players


Matt Payne
Director of Scouting, PBR of NC

PBR North Carolina held its Winter Kickoff ID on Sunday February 14th in Maiden, NC. The event was held at the Athletes Lab Performance Center. Athletes lab is a spacious facility that has multiple batting cages, a pitching area, weight room, and a fully open cage at 120ft x 100ft. It provides kids with a great place to train. 

Position players were able to run a laser timed 30, take batting practice in the open cage with Trackman and Blast recording ball flight and swing analytics. Position players were also able to go through a defensive workout being graded on their athleticism, footwork, hands, and arm strength. Pitchers threw a controlled bullpen with Trackman measuring ball flight analytics.
