Rising Stars of Southern Nevada: TrackMan Hitting Leaders


Cam Black-Araujo
PBR Nevada Operations

On Sunday, April 2nd, PBR Nevada hosted its first Rising Stars of the year at Desert Oasis High School in Las Vegas, Nevada. Rising Stars events are specifically for the 2027 and 2028 classes and give our staff a look younger prospects in the State before they head to the high school level. Rising Stars showcases also serve as identifiers for Nevada's team at the 2023 PBR Jr. Future Games at Lakepoint in Emerson, Georgia.

The event featured roughly 40 players with a large portion of them being from the 2027 class. We had several standout performers who have already jumped out as some of the more intriguing prospects to-date in their respective classes.

At this event, we retrieved a significant amount of data on each player including: 60 Times and running splits measured by Swift Performance, Batting Practice measured by TrackMan, Catch Pop Time and Velocity, Outfield Evaluation and Velocity, Infield Evaluation and Velocity and Pitcher Bullpens analyzed and assessed by TrackMan. We pride ourselves on utilizing the latest technology in the game to provide the most accurate data for both the player and those recruiting/evaluating the player.

Below, we continue our post-event coverage with a look at the top TrackMan hitting metrics from batting practice at the Rising Stars of Southern Nevada Showcase.
