Future Games Trials - Statistical Analysis


Cam Black-Araujo
Lead Scout, PBR Canada

On Friday, April 15, our PBR Ontario staff hosted our first Future Games Trials of the year at the Athlete Matrix in Mississauga, home of the Ontario Blue Jays. This was our first major event of the year tailored towards selecting our 2022 Canadian Future Games team. 

Our scouting staff got a look at over 80 Future Game eligible players and they didn't disappoint. There were plenty of bats from the 2024 and 2025 classes, while we had a dozen arms at 84+ mph. 

Below, we begin to break down the top performances on the day.
