Trackman Pitching Analytics: Tri State Arsenal Scout Day

Matt Payne
Director of Scouting, PBR of NC

On Saturday August 21st PBR of North Carolina was at Clark Field on the campus of St. Andrews University for a Scout Day with the Tri State Arsenal. Players in attendance ranged from the 2022-2026 grad classes.

The day started with catchers going through a defensive evaluation followed by pitchers throwing a controlled bullpen of 15-20 pitches with Trackman collecting ball flight data. After the pitchers position players ran a laser timed 60, took batting practice on the field with Trackman gathering advanced information. The day concluded with infielders and outfielders going through a defensive evaluation. 

Below we take our first look at some of the numbers produced throughout the workout. CLICK HERE for full roster and stats.

Average Effective Velocity

Effective velocity is taking into account the velocity of each pitch, it release distance, the pitches time to the plate / hitting area, and the pitches movement.  With all of this information, Effective Velocity is allowing coaches and scouts to more accurately compare how a pitch is affecting a hitter.
