Northern Nevada Prospect Open: Stat Analysis


Brett Harrison
Nevada Scouting Director

The Northern Nevada Prospect Open was an opportunity for players from all over Northern Nevada to show off improvements made during the summer and increase their recruiting stock as we head into a crucial Fall season. This event featured a talented crop of players that should continue to generate interest over the next year and was one of the final events before the Fall PBR Player Ranking Updates are announced. 

Players were put through a Pro-Style Workout, which consisted of a Laser Time 60 Yard Dash, a TrackMan and Blast Motion analyzed Batting Practice session, Catcher Evaluations that included Pop Times, Velocity, Receiving and Blocking, Outfield Evaluations and Infield Evaluations. 

We now look at the top statistical performances from each metric measured at the Northern Nevada Prospect Open.
