Best of 2023: Best Infield Arm Velocity

Brandon Hall
Mid-Atlantic Scouting Director

PBR runs several different types of events in our effort to see as many players as possible.  There are Scout Days that PBR covers for area teams as well as PBR events like Open IDs, Team Carolina IDs, and our Invite Only Events.  Through these events, players are able to update their PBR profiles with accurate and verified data, as well as video.  

In 2023, PBR ran 15 events, including our Preseason All-State Events, the 2023 NC ProCase,  and the NC/SC Border Battle.  Our scouts also saw 25 Scout Days from area organizations. At each event, players had the opportunity to test their speed with Swift Athletics.  With room available, the Swift lasers would measure 10yd and 30yd splits while getting a 60 yd time.  Swift Athletics would also render each player's top end run speed.  As the technology allowed, certain events included Jump Tests with Swift Athletics, including a max vertical jump being measured.  Players would also get a full offensive evaluation with TrackMan assisting to track ball flight off the bat.  Defensively, players worked out at their primary positions with arm velocity taken by a Stalker Radar.  Pitchers threw bullpens in our scout days, winter events and our ID events.  At events like the NC/SC Border Battle and the NC Top Prospect Games, pitchers threw to hitters.  In each case, TrackMan captured all ball flight data out of the hand, giving coaches and scouts a ton of information on each arm.  All player metrics and measurables, as well as player video, is then posted on individual PBR Player Profiles.  The player profiles allow each player to assess their stats and metrics compared to other players in their state or grad class.  For players that have attended multiple PBR events in multiple years, the PBR Profile allows players to build history that can be seen and evaluated by college coaches or pro scouts.

As we look back on the full year that was 2023, we continue with a look at some of the top performances at PBR Events.  In this look, we are looking at every event PBR covered and ran with a break down of some of the top performances sectioned by graduating class.
