Quick Hitters: Team Carolina Trials - Charlotte - Pitchers

Brandon Hall
Mid-Atlantic Scouting Director

On Wednesday May 31st PBR of North Carolina hosted trials for Team Carolina at Moor Park in Mooresville, NC. The Team Carolina Trials leads to identifying prospects for some of the summer’s biggest invite only events like NC/SC Border Battle, PBR Southeast Senior Games, Top Prospect Games, and the PBR Future Games. The event featured players from the 2024-2027 grad classes. 

The day began with players running a laser timed 60 followed by BP on the field with Trackman collecting ball flight data. After BP, catchers, outfielders and infielders went through a defensive evaluation. The day concluded with pitchers throwing a controlled bullpen with Trackman gathering ball flight information on each pitch. 

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