TrackMan Leaders: Pitchers from the Preseason All-State II

Brandon Hall
Mid-Atlantic Executive Director

On Sunday March 21st  PBR NC hosted its second of two Preseason All State events at Fleming Stadium in Wilson, 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. 62 of the top players from across the state participated in the event. There were lots of good numbers posted on the windy day. 

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.
