Future Games Trials (Session 1): TrackMan Pitching Leaders


Cam Black-Araujo
Assistant Director, PBR Canada

On Friday, April 7th, the PBR Ontario staff headed to The Athlete Matrix facility in Mississauga to host our first Future Games Trials showcase of the season. We had over 100 players from the 2025 and 2026 classes in attendance for the sold out event.

The event gave our staff a look at some of the top uncommitted players in those classes who are all vying for a spot on Canada's team at this summer's Future Games at LakePoint Sports in Emerson, Georgia. It was a talented roster with a ton of impressive performances on both sides of the ball and we continue to break down some of the standout players below with our second post-event leaderboard.

At this event, we retrieved a significant amount of data on each player including: 30-yard times, batting practice measured by TrackMan, catcher pop-times 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 break down the top pitching metrics via TrackMan from the event.
