Executive Director, PBR of NC

On Thursday July 16th, Prep Baseball Report of North Carolina will be at the Burlington Royals Stadium in Burlington, NC, hosting the 4th edition of the Top Underclass Games.  This year's event will feature another highly touted list of players looking to impress college coaches and pro scouts.

The day will include a full pro-style workout for position players with multiple rounds of BP utilizing Blast Motion and TrackMan to gather advanced analytics on each player.   As we move into game play, TrackMan will be used on the pitchers who will be throwing in live hitter situations.
