Southern Nevada Preseason ID: TrackMan Hitting Leaders


Cam Black-Araujo
PBR Nevada Operations

On Wednesday, February 8th, PBR Nevada hosted it's first identification showcase of the 2023 season, the Southern Nevada Preseason ID. Preseason ID's allow our staff to get a look at players ahead of the high school season, as well as offer players a chance to update their profiles and metrics as they head into the season.

The event featured players from the 2023 - 2027 classes and gave us a look at some intriguing unsigned upperclassmen, as well as some of Nevada's top underclassmen including a trio of Power 5 commits.

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, Pitcher Bullpens analyzed and assessed by TrackMan and Visual Testing utilizing Vizual Edge. 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 data from batting practice at the event.
