The Southeast Unsigned Senior Games took place on July 27th at LakePoint in Emerson, GA. The event featured some of the top 2022 uncommitted prospects from across the southeast.

Team Carolina was composed of players from North and South Carolina. Players began their day going a full pro-style workout running a laser timed 60, defensive workout at their primary position and live BP with Trackman and Blast collecting offensive analytics. Following the workout players played 14 innings of live baseball with pitchers throwing 2 innings each. 

Team Carolina was well represented with several players putting up numbers in the workout and performing well in the live game action. Below we take a look at the top number posted in several categories throughout the day from Team Carolina.
