On Sunday June 5th PBR of North Carolina was on hand at Hickory Ridge HS for a scout day with the On Deck O's and NCBA Golden Spikes. The scout day featured players from the 2023-2025 grad classes.

The day began with pitchers and catchers on site.  The Catchers went through their defensive workout first, throwing through to 2B.  They were then evaluated as the pitchers worked through controlled bullpens.  TrackMan collected data on each pitch thrown throughout the day. Next, players ran a laser timed 10/30/60 with laser timers from Swift Technology collecting the data. Position players then went through a full offensive workout, featuring multiple rounds of batting practice with TrackMan tracking ball flight data.  After the offense, infielders and outfielders went through their positional workouts to conclude the day.    .

Below we begin our breakdown of the players in attendance looking at the top performers in different categories.  Look for more statistics and information to follow in the coming days.
