Quick Hitters: Cougars 2023 Scout Day - Position Players

Brandon Hall
Executive Director of Scouting, PBR NC

PBR was at West Iredell HS on Saturday November 7th for a workout featuring players from the 2023 Cougars organization.  At the same time, an open prospect identification event was run as well.  During the event, position players ran through a full pro-style workout including a laser timed 60.  During the offensive portion of the event, Blast Motion and TrackMan were used to track pre-contact swing metrics and post-contact ball flight.  At the conclusion of the pro-style workout, pitchers threw a controlled bullpen with TrackMan again, following ball flight out of the hand.
