Preseason All-State South: Schedule and Roster Preview

Brandon Hall
Mid-Atlantic Scouting Director

The 2023 winter showcase season is upon us with the Preseason All-State South taking off this Sunday in the Charlotte suburb of Waxhaw, NC.  The Preseason All-State South will feature approximately 40 players from the state, going through a full workout with PBR Scouts.  Each player will update their stats, analytics, and video, showcasing their gains from the off-season, as they continue to get ready for the spring.

As we enter the 5th year of the Preseason All-State event in North Carolina it is obvious this event has become a must-see for college coaches and pro scouts.  While most schools are not allowed on the road yet, per NCAA rules, they are able to follow each event, seeing trusted stats and video as the events conclude. From the past 4 years, PBR of North Carolina has seen 189 player commit to play college baseball.  With the rosters being built for the 4 Preseason All-State events in 2023, that number is only going to continue to climb.

Preseason All-State South Schedule

This schedule will be tightened based on late sign-ups throughout the rest of the week.  Times are scheduled for change.

Pitchers will throw a controlled bullpen, featuring 12-20 pitches, quickly showcasing each player's arsenal for PBR Scouts and TrackMan.  Catchers will be evaluated receiving bullpens, as well in a workout setting, throwing pop times to 2B. Infielders and outfielders will go through defensive workouts as well.  All position players will take live BP, in expanded cages that will allow PBR Scouts to see the ball fly.  Throughout the workout, player video will be taken and stats will be gathered.  TrackMan will be used for all ball flight data.  Blast will be used for pre-contact swing metrics.

All players will be able to run a laser timed 30 yard, with a 10 yard split. The Swift Jump mat will be used to measure player's vertical jump and RSI.  Position players will also be able to take the Vizual Edge test as well, getting a measurement on how their eyes can detect objects in space.
