2023 PBR Spring Training: TrackMan Pitching Leaders


Cam Black-Araujo
Assistant Director, PBR Canada

PBR Canada Spring Training has now come to an end and it couldn't have been a better or more fun seven days down South for our staff. We got an early look at hundreds of Canadians and it was first major event that will help our staff begin to narrow down players who will eventually compete for the PBR Canada Selects teams at several marquee PBR events in the U.S. including the Future Games, Junior Future Games and the West Coast Games.

Stay tuned over the next several days as we continue to take a look at the top metrics and data from the week-long event in Cocoa, Florida.

We had full staff on hand from Canada and Florida throughout the week with five active fields filled with 230+ Canadian prospects. We had 16 total teams on hand under eight different organizations from the Ontario Giants, NRS Institute (2), Canes Canada (3), Whitby Canadians, Etobicoke Rangers (3), Ontario Prospects (3) and PBR Canada Selects (3).

Below, we begin our post-event coverage with a look at the top TrackMan pitching data from the event.
