Quick Hitters: CVCC Scout Day Pitchers


Brandon Hall
Mid-Atlantic Executive Director

On Wednesday October 27th PBR of North Carolina was on hand in Hickory, NC for a Scout Day with Catawba Valley Community College. 

The day began with pitchers throwing a controlled bullpen with Trackman gathering ball flight analytics. After the bullpens were complete, catchers went through a defensive evaluation followed by a laser timed 60, batting practice on the field with Trackman collecting ball flight data. The day concluded with outfielders and infielders going through a defensive evaluation. 

Below we take a look at some of the numbers collected during the workout. Be on the lookout for more notes and information in the coming days.
