Quick Hitters: East Coast Clippers Scout Day

Brandon Hall
Executive Director, PBR NC

Prep Baseball Report was at Ting Park in Holly Springs, NC on Friday October 18th for a PBR Scout Day with the East Coast Clippers.  Clipper players were taken through a full pro-style workout by PBR Scouts.  Offensively, players took multiple rounds of live BP and went through an exit velocity testing station in the cages.  Defensively, each player was able to workout from their respective position with scouts putting full evaluations on each player, while taking statistics on arm strength and pop times for catchers.  Pitchers threw controlled bullpens with scouts getting velocities, spin rates while also watching mechanical setup, delivery, arm action and more.

Today we begin to dive into the East Coast Clippers scout day with some quick notes on players that made a big initial impression.  While the quick hitters do not tell the entire story, and PBR Scouts will be diving into their notes and video for upcoming evaluations, this gives us a quick look at some of the talent on hand.
