Quick Hitters: USA Prime ID Position Players

Brandon Hall
Mid-Atlantic Executive Director

PBR was on hand at Craven Stadium in Ramseur, NC on Saturday February 13th to organize and run an ID event for USA Prime.  The event, powered by PBR, was a USA Prime ID, allowing players to update their PBR stats as well as allow USA Prime coaches to build their regional and national teams in their program.

The event began with controlled bullpens and was followed by position players running a laser timed 60.  Hitters then went through multiple rounds of BP and worked out at their defensive positions.
