Scout Day Insider: Catchers with Cannons

Brandon Hall
Mid-Atlantic Scouting Director

Throughout the summer, PBR Scouts ran PBR Scout Days with organizations from across North Carolina.  The Scout Days offer players a chance to go through a PBR workout, update their profiles with stats and video, and qualify for PBR event like the PBR Future Games and Top Prospect Games.  The Scout Days are run at a substantially lower cost than a typical Open ID with the help of the organization involved.

For the organizations, the PBR Scout Days offer the opportunity to run their players through a Combine type of testing, evaluating their developmental program, along with giving players neutral feedback as to where they stand vs. their peers.  All of the information is contained on one web page, allowing organizations to publicize their rosters to college coaches and scouts with one convenient click on the mouse.

In this series of articles, to release weekly, we will dive into the spring & summer of 2022 PBR Scout Days.  Each article will take a look at one particular tool, giving a feel for the players that put up big numbers at their event.  Each player listed has a full PBR Profile with stats, video, and more.

Catcher Positional Velocity

During the Scout Day workouts, catchers will simulate throws to 2B during a stolen base attempt.  Part of the stats gathered from this workout includes a radar gun reading on each throw out of the crouch.  This gives coaches and scouts a feel arm strength at the position, while also giving some feel for how the transition to the throw, and the carry on the throw, play into the catcher pop time.
