Ottawa Fall Open ID: Statistical Analysis


Cam Black-Araujo
Lead Scout, PBR Canada

On Friday, November 25th, PBR Ontario hosted its final full showcase of the year in the Nation's Capital for the Ottawa Fall Open ID. The event included over 25+ players with the majority of them being on the positional side.

Players ran through a pro-style workout that included batting practice, positional drills and the 60-yard dash. We had players from the 2023-2025 classes and one 2026 with some strong showings across the board on the infield and at the dish.

We continue to break it all down below with a look at the top performers, metric wise, from the event.
