Fall Notes: 2-Way Prospects (2024-2025)

Dan Jurik
Scouting Director - Pacific Northwest

The Sherwood Fall Open was held on September 17th at Sherwood High School. This event consisted of prospects from the 2023-2026 classes. These players went through a pro-style workout and took batting practice using Trackman to record hitting metrics. Pitchers were able to get numbers and metrics off of our Trackman unit, such as pitch velocity, spin rate, horizontal & vertical movement & much more. There were some players who showed up and continued to build off of prior performances, but there were also some new names who jumped onto our radar with a strong showing.

Check out our Statistical Release from the event as well as Trackman Files and our Blast Motion Leaderboard
Today we're spotlight 3 prospects from the workout in the 2024 & 2025 classes who impressed with their showing as 2-way players
