Sammy Esposito
PBR SC Director of Scouting

The Southeast Unsigned Senior Games took place on July 27th at LakePoint in Emerson, GA. The event featured some of the top 2022 uncommitted prospects from across the southeast.

Team Carolina was composed of players from North and South Carolina. Players began their day going a full pro-style workout running a laser timed 60, defensive workout at their primary position and live BP with Trackman and Blast collecting offensive analytics. Following the workout players played 14 innings of live baseball with pitchers throwing 2 innings each. 

Team Carolina was well represented with several players putting up numbers in the workout and performing well in the live game action. Below we take a look at the top number posted in several categories throughout the day from Team Carolina.

Statistical Breakdown

 

THE 60 YARD DASH

Players ran a laser timed 60 yard dash to start their day. The 60 was ran on an artificial surface.

POSITIONAL VELOCITY – INFIELDERS

Infielders were able to workout at shortstop throwing across the infield, or from 1B throwing to 2B and 3B in the pro-style workout.  Coaches are working to evaluate rhythm, footwork, hands, exchanges, arm action, accuracy, and carry.  To measure arm strength PBR Scouts utilize a radar gun.  Below are the top posted positional velocities from the day.

3 Nicholas Reiss NC Franklinton 2022 1B 75
^ Tyler Roakes NC Carmel Christian 2022 3B 75

 

POSITIONAL VELOCITY – OUTFIELDERS

Outfielders worked out from right field, making throws to the plate.  Throws were measured by a radar gun to gauge arm strength.  Scouts are also working to see exchange, arm path, carry, and accuracy.

Rank Name State School Class Pos OF Velo
1 Mac Ketchin SC Wando 2022 OF 89
2 Alex Steckler NC Olympic 2022 RHP 88
3 Thomas Bowman NC Wesleyan Christian 2022 OF 86
^ Andrew Stephens NC Southwest Guilford 2021 SS 86
^ Andrew Stephens SC AC Flora 2022 OF 86
4 William Campagna SC Wando 2022 OF 83

 

CATCHER POP TIMES & POSITIONAL VELOCITY

In the pro-style workout, catchers workout from behind home plate, making multiple throws to 2B, simulating a stolen base attempt.  Scouts again are looking for a quick, clean transition to the release as well as carry and accuracy on the throw.  For catchers, evaluators will put a stopwatch on the “pop time” or the time the ball hits their glove to the time the ball hits the MIF’s glove at 2B.  Coaches can also time the transition from when the ball hits the catchers glove to when he is able to release his throw.  PBR scouts add the radar gun to put a number on the arm strength out of the crouched position.

Rank Name State School Class Pos Pop Time
1 Regan Bernard NC Middle Creek 2022 C 1.95-2.02
2 William Sword NC Thales Academy 2022 RHP 1.99-2.04
