Prospects Scout Day: Statisticial Analysis


Cam Black-Araujo
Lead Scout, PBR Canada

On Wednesday, September 28th, the PBR Ontario staff remained in the Durham Region to host the Ontario Prospects Scout Day at Heritage Park in Ajax.

Another program we've held an annual Scout Day with several years now, the Prospects organization has continued to get stronger and stronger over the years and that was evident on Wednesday. The event featured 40+ players, including 25+ arms and it was loaded with talent from the 2024 and 2025 classes, along with some young 2026s who also impressed. 

Below, we begin to unpack everything we saw starting with our defensive and athletic testing leaderboards.
