Quick Hitters: Canes National ID - Pitchers

Brandon Hall
Mid-Atlantic Scouting Director

On Saturday August 12th PBR of South Carolina and North Carolina was on hand at C35 Baseball Complex for the Canes National Team Trials. The event featured players from the 2025-2028 Grad Classes. 

The day began with players going through a rotation that involved running a laser timed 60 and taking batting practice on the field with Trackman collecting ball flight data. After batting practice, position players went through a defensive evaluation. The scout day concluded with pitchers throwing a controlled bullpen with Trackman gathering information on each pitch, along with a live action game play. 

Below we begin our breakdown of the players in attendance. Look for more information to follow in the coming days.
