Team Carolina Prospect ID - Mooresville: Statistical Breakdown


Matt Payne
Director of Scouting, PBR of NC

PBR of North Carolina hosted its Team Carolina Prospect ID on June 23rd at Moor Park in Mooresville, NC. The event is used to select players to represent Team Carolina at the Future Games, Junior Future Games, Unsigned Senior Games, Academic Games, and other select events held in the Carolina’s. The event featured players from the 2022-2026 grad classes. 

The event started with catchers going through their defensive evaluations. After the catchers the pitchers threw bullpens with cameras rolling and Trackman gathering ball flight data. Position players started their workout with a laser timed 60 then taking BP on the field with Trackman collecting ball flight information. After BP infielders and outfielders went through their defensive workout. 

Below we begin to breakdown the numbers collected throughout the event.

THE 60 YARD DASH

Players ran a laser timed 60 yard dash to start the pro-style workout. The 60 was ran on a natural surface.

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.
