Statistical Breakdown: Preseason All State West


Matt Payne
Director of Scouting, PBR of NC

On Sunday January 29th PBR of North Carolina hosted its second of four Preseason All State Events at the Athletes Lab Performance Center in Maiden, NC. The Preseason All State Events have become the premier winter event in NC featuring some of the top talent from across the state. The events feature players from the 2023-2026 grad classes. 

The day started with pitchers throwing a controlled bullpen with Trackman collecting advanced analytics. After the bullpens, players went outside to the 100 yard turf field to have their running and jumping metrics tested. Then catchers, infielders, and outfielders went through a defensive evaluation. The day concluded with hitters taking batting practice in the open cage with Trackman collecting ball flight data. 

Below we begin our breakdown of the players in attendance. Look for more information to follow in the coming days.
