Prep Baseball Report

Year Review: Max Distance

Brett Thorney
State Scouting Director


It was indeed a strange year in 2020, the spring HS season shut down early and players across the state found themselves trying to get games in wherever they could. The state of Arizona was luckier than some states out there and was able to show some consistency throughout the summer and fall seasons. From a scouting perspective, the players that got to work during some extra time off really stood out towards the end of the summer and during fall competition. Some players were able to make some big physical transformations during that time while some prospects were able to make some big improvements to their swings or mechanics. PBR Arizona was able to get out to see some of these improvements, having spent hundreds of hours at the baseball field while holding plenty of their own events throughout the year. 

The biggest question mark in 2020 was what was going to happen to college recruiting. Scouts all over the country have had to get clever with their approach but there has been plenty of recruiting still going on. At this time last year, there were about 3 commits in the 2022 grad class committed to DI programs. This year, there are already 16 prospects committed in the 2023 class. College coaches are finding a way to get it done and Prep Baseball Report has been there to help provide resources to those scouts to aid in the process. We are looking forward to continue covering prospects in the future.

One of our biggest additions to PBR in 2020 was the implementation of higher level technology with advanced data metrics including. Prep Baseball Report events across the country were powered by TrackMan’s industry-leading Portable system to capture pinpoint accurate, actionable data from player performances. Prep Baseball Report and TrackMan are dedicated to recognizing talent and unleashing their potential.

As we wrap up 2020, we will continue reviewing some of the top performances of the past year. Today, we will be taking a look at the farthest hit balls recorded using our Trackman system:
