Summer Standouts: Top Infield Velocity


Brett Harrison
Nevada Scouting Director

This summer, Prep Baseball Report events across the country have been powered by TrackMan & Blast, some of the industry-leading technology to capture pinpoint accurate, actionable data from player performances. Prep Baseball Report and its partners are dedicated to recognizing talent and unleashing their potential. We have been able to collect key metrics throughout the summer on some of the top prospects throughout the state and country. This data has been collected and will be sharable with coaches & scouts as well as help players identify areas of development.

With the Nevada Top Prospect completed, that is a wrap on the 2020 PBR Summer events. Now, we take a look at the Summer Standouts across all ages and events to who posted the top numbers at our summer events which would include the Rising Stars of Nevada, Northern Nevada Prospect Update, Southern Nevada Hitter/Pitcher Update, Junior Future Games, Future Games and Nevada Top Prospect Games. We also had the chance to see the progress many players have made throughout the summer season or where players currently stand in their development process. In conclusion of the summer season, we wanted to take the time to highlight the leaders from all of our events this summer in specific metrics that we have collected. 

Today, we look at the Summer Standouts: Top Infield Velocity:
