Maritimes Games: TrackMan Files (Hitting)


Cam Black-Araujo
Lead Scout, PBR Canada

Last month PBR Atlantic hosted its annual Maritimes Games, the Atlantic's feature event of the year. The event featured a pro style workout for each position player, followed by three games for each team. All players ran through athletic testing with our tech partner Swift, along with hitters and pitchers each receiving data metrics through TrackMan.

The event gave our staff a look at 65+ players from three provinces and we continue to break it all down below with hitting leaders from batting practice.
