Canes West - Las Vegas Scout Day: Pitcher Leaderboard


Brett Harrison
Nevada Scouting Director

The PBR Scout Days have become our way of kicking the year off with an event where players throughout Nevada are provided an opportunity to update their PBR Player Profiles with the base level information retrieved. From the PBR Scout Day, we are able to track players progess, highlight standout performances and begin the process of selecting the very best to represent Nevada at the 2022 Junior Future Games (2026/2027), the 2022 Future Games (2024/2025) or the 2022 West Coast Games (2023). Both high school programs and club organizations have an opportunity to provide their players with an exclusive Scout Day for players within their program. 

This year, we will be adding the use of our TrackMan System to provide each player with the most accurate and relevant information from both hitting and pitching standpoint. Along with the TrackMan, we have rebranded our Open Scout Days in both Northern and Southern Nevada as the Northern Nevada Preseason ID and the Southern Nevada Preseason ID. These new event will provide the same opportunity as the exclusive Scout Days hosted by the high schools and club programs, as they will play a vital role in the selection of Team Nevada for the Summer of 2022. 

During the Canes West - Las Vegas Scout Day, we retrieved an abundance of information on each player, including a Laser Timed 60, TrackMan Evaluated Batting Practice Session, Catcher Evaluation, Outfield Evaluation, Infield Evaluation and TrackMan Analyzed Pitcher Bullpens, that now lives in each players PBR Player Profile. The metrics retrieved help provide in-depth information on each player, but does not paint the entire picture of what they are capable of on the field. For younger players, this information collected is a way to assess your progress you have made in recent months, providing context for accurate projection in the years to come. 

We continue to break down the data collected at the Canes West - Las Vegas Scout Day with the Pitcher Leaderboard.
