SC/NC ProCase: TrackMan Pitching Leaders


Brandon Hall
Mid-Atlantic Executive Director

Prep Baseball Report has quickly become the most trusted independent scouting source in the Carolina’s and across the country. The ProCase continues to bring in some of the top draft prospects in the area and allow pro-scouts to get an early look before their high school seasons begin. 

The SC/NC ProCase took place on Sunday February 7th at Body Shop Baseball in Lexington, SC. The event was moved indoors due to the projected weather forecast for the morning. Pitchers started the day throwing a controlled bullpen with Trackman gathering data on each arm. Hitters then took BP in a spacious box cage allowing evaluators to see the ball fly with Trackman recording ball off the bat data. Following BP, catchers arm strength was measured with the radar gun while also allowing evaluators to see their footwork, exchange and release. Infielders took ground balls showing off their hands, rhythm, and footwork. Outfielders finished the day working through ground balls and being able to throw into one of the cages measuring their arm strength.
