Quick Hitters: Top Prospect Games 2024 Pitchers

Brandon Hall
Mid-Atlantic Scouting Director

PBR of North Carolina hosted its Top Prospect Games on August 2nd at Campbell University. The event featured players from across the state in the 2024-2026 grad classes. The Top Prospect Games continues to be one of the most popular summer events on the PBR summer schedule with several college coaches in attendance taking a look at the prospects in attendance.  

The day started with position players taking batting practice on the field with Trackman collecting ball flight data. After BP position players went through a defensive evaluation that began with the outfielders followed by the catchers and infielders. When players finished their defensive workout they ran a laser timed 60 using Swift Technology. In the afternoon players were split into 6 teams with each team playing 2 controlled games with Trackman gathering information on each pitcher that threw in the game. 

Below we begin our breakdown of the players in attendance looking at the top performers in select categories.
