Statistical Breakdown: Underclass Games


Matt Payne
Director of Scouting, PBR of NC

On Saturday November 5th PBR of North Carolina hosted its Underclass Games at War Memorial Stadium in Greensboro, NC. The invite only event featured some of the top players from across North Carolina in the 2024-2026 grad classes. 

 The day began with position players running a laser timed 10yd and 60 yd sprint. After running position players took batting practice on the field with Trackman collecting ball flight data and Blast collecting swing information. Following batting practice position players went through a defensive evaluation. After the pro-style workout position players were split into two teams and played two controlled scrimmage games facing live arms. During the games Trackman was used to gather data on each pitcher. 

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