Trackman Leaders: Fall ID Triangle Hitters
September 20, 2023
On Tuesday September 12th PBR of North Carolina was on hand at Knightdale High for the Fall Triangle ID and the Rawlings Prospects Scout Day. The events ran together and featured players from the 2024-2027 grad classes.
The evening began with catchers going through a defensive evaluation followed by pitchers throwing a controlled bullpen with Trackman collecting data on each pitch. After the pitchers the position players ran a laser timed 60 followed by batting practice on the field with Trackman collecting ball flight data. The events concluded with outfielders and infielders going through a defensive evaluation.
Below we begin our breakdown of the players in attendance. Look for more information to follow in the coming days.

HARD HIT PERCENTAGE
TrackMan is able to track and follow exit velocities of each hitter. Based on the individual's top exit velocity, TrackMan is able to give us a percentage of hard hit balls. This percentage is based off of each individual hitter's top exit velocity.
LAUNCH ANGLE PERCENTAGE
Based on the ball flight, TrackMan is able to identify each hit as a ground ball, line drive, or fly ball. While there are many factors as to why a hitter may approach each pitch in a certain way, the overall groupings of BP can give some insight to each hitter's approach.
