Quick Hitters: USA Prime Org ID Pitchers


Brandon Hall
Mid-Atlantic Scouting Director

PBR was on hand on November 12, 2022 at High Point University for the USA Prime Organizational ID.  The event, organized and run by USA Prime, allowed the organization to ID players for their future rosters.  PBR was on hand to collect stats on the high school players that participated.

PBR runs a Scout Day for USA Prime each summer.  The Organizational ID is an opportunity for the USA Prime players, and others in attendance, to update their stats on their PBR Profile. Players can continue to see how their developmental process, and strength and conditioning plan, is paying off on the field.

Pitchers threw controlled bullpens to open up the workout.  Radar guns were used to collect data on each pitcher in attendance.  Offensive players went through a pro-style workout, running a laser timed 60, taking live BP on field, and then working out at their defensive positions.  Below we take a peak at the leaders from the workout.  CLICK HERE to see the full schedule and statistical output from the workout.
