Uncommitted Upperclass Prospect ID: Quick Hitters-Position Players

Matt Payne
Director of Scouting, PBR of NC

On Saturday March 28th PBR of NC held its Uncommitted Upperclass Prospect ID along with a Future Games ID at Big League Camp in Marion, NC. The Uncommitted Upperclass Prospect ID featured players from the 2021-2022 grad classes. Big League Camp is a beautiful facility located next to Lake James that features an all turf baseball field with a spacious indoor facility. 

Pitchers and catchers got the day started with catchers going through their defensive workout followed by pitchers throwing their bullpens. Trackman was used during the bullpens to gather advanced analytics on each arm. After the bullpens position players ran a laser timed 60 followed by outfielders and infielders going through their defensive workout. BP was set to take place on the field but had to be moved indoors due to thunderstorms and heavy rain in the area. Trackman was used during BP to gather ball flight information. 

Throughout the workout, PBR scouts were taking metrics on players while evaluating their complete skill set.  Featured below are notes once Uncommitted Upperclass Prospect ID position players.
