Quick Hitters: Tri State Arsenal Pitchers

Matt Payne
Director of Scouting, PBR of NC

On Saturday August 21st PBR of North Carolina was at Clark Field on the campus of St. Andrews University for a Scout Day with the Tri State Arsenal. Players in attendance ranged from the 2022-2026 grad classes.

The day started with catchers going through a defensive evaluation followed by pitchers throwing a controlled bullpen of 15-20 pitches with Trackman collecting ball flight data. After the pitchers position players ran a laser timed 60, took batting practice on the field with Trackman gathering advanced information. The day concluded with infielders and outfielders going through a defensive evaluation. 

Below we take our first look at some of the numbers produced throughout the workout. CLICK HERE for full roster and stats.
