Exit Velocity - Off a Tee

Part of the offensive workout included working off of a tee to record a static exit velocity.  A Stalker Pro SII was used to record the power from each player.  The top bolt was recorded at an impressive 92 mph off the barrel.  Five players saw an exit above 84 mph, with another four players at 80 mph or higher.

Positional Velocity - Infielders

Infielders did their work from shortstop and 1B, making multiple throws across the diamond, simulating live ground balls.  Scouts are looking for actions, feet, hands, rhythm, exchange, carry and accuracy, as well as arm strength.  Arm strength can be measured, to a point, by a radar gun.  The top infield velocities from Team Carolina Junior infielders are below.

Positional Velocity - Outfielders

A number of position players for Team Carolina can, and will, play all over the diamond.  Four players worked out from the outfield, making throws from right field to the plate.  Again, accuracy and carry can be gauged in a number of ways.  The radar gun helps to put a number on raw arm strength.

Pop Times and Positional Velocity - Catchers

Catchers made multiple throws through to 2B, simulating a stolen base attempt.  Coaches and scouts have a number of ways to evaluate catchers.  The Pop Time signifies the time from the ball hits a catchers glove to the time it takes for a throw to be received at 2B.  The positional velocity is the radar reading of those throws.  Two catchers worked out for Team Carolina, each making a mark.
