Statistical Breakdown: Preseason All State I


Matt Payne
Director of Scouting, PBR of NC

On Sunday March 14th PBR NC hosted its first of two Preseason All State events at Noel Williams Park in Monroe, NC.  The Preseason All State Showcase is the top winter event in the state. With the public high school season being pushed back due to Covid the event was able to move outdoors with it being held later in the year than normal. 60 of the top players from across the state participated in the event. 

Pitchers started the day throwing a controlled bullpen of 15-20 pitches with cameras rolling and Trackman gathering ball flight data. After bullpens position players ran a laser timed 60, followed by a defensive evaluation and offensive evaluation.  During live BP, TrackMan was able to gather ball flight information off the bat.  

Throughout the workout, PBR scouts were taking metrics on players while evaluating their complete skill set.  Today we take a look at each category as well as the leaders in those categories.  As we continue to dive into all of the information gathered, players will receive a full evaluation and the PBR staff will put together top prospect lists from the event.

Statistical Leaders

THE 60 YARD DASH

Players ran a laser timed 60 yard dash to start the day. The 60 was ran on a natural surface. The surface was soft from rain earlier in the week appearing to slow times down a bit.

TRACKMAN MAX EXIT VELOCITY (BP)

During BP, TrackMan tracked ball flight off the bat.  One element TrackMan is able to produce is the exit velocity.  Below are the top Exit Velocities produced during live BP.

TRACKMAN MAX DISTANCE (BP)

During BP, TrackMan tracked ball flight off the bat.  One element TrackMan is able to produce is the distance each hit travels, if in fair territory.  Below are the top max distances produced during live BP.

POSITIONAL VELOCITY – INFIELDERS

Infielders were able to workout at shortstop throwing across the infield, or from 1B throwing to 2B and 3B in the pro-style workout.  Coaches are working to evaluate rhythm, footwork, hands, exchanges, arm action, accuracy, and carry.  To measure arm strength PBR Scouts utilize a radar gun.  Below are the top posted positional velocities from the day.

POSITIONAL VELOCITY – OUTFIELDERS

Outfielders worked out from right field, making throws to the plate.  Throws were measured by a radar gun to gauge arm strength.  Scouts are also working to see exchange, arm path, carry, and accuracy.

CATCHER POP TIMES & POSITIONAL VELOCITY

In the pro-style workout, catchers workout from behind home plate, making multiple throws to 2B, simulating a stolen base attempt.  Scouts again are looking for a quick, clean transition to the release as well as carry and accuracy on the throw.  For catchers, evaluators will put a stopwatch on the “pop time” or the time the ball hits their glove to the time the ball hits the MIF’s glove at 2B.  Coaches can also time the transition from when the ball hits the catchers glove to when he is able to release his throw.  PBR scouts add the radar gun to put a number on the arm strength out of the crouched position.
