Sammy Esposito
PBR SC Director of Scouting

The Midlands Open ID with Advanced Analytics took place on Wednesday Oct. 13th at Lexington County BallPark in Lexington South Carolina. Prospects from the event came from around the Palmetto state on a beautiful fall evening.

The event began with a defensive evaluation for catchers, pitcher bullpens with each pitch tracked by Trackman, along with Pitch AI.  A pro-style workout for all the position players followed that included the 60 yard dash, BP with TrackMan ball flight analysis, and a defensive evaluation. 

Below we will look at Offensive statistics and leaderboards for the event.
