NC/SC Border Battle: Superlatives - SC - Pitchers
July 14, 2023
Over 115 of the top players from North Carolina and South Carolina converged on UNC Charlotte’s Robert & Mariam Hayes Stadium on June 28, 2023 for the PBR NC/SC Border Battle. In front of over 30 college and professional coaches and scouts, players from each state went through a pre-game workout and then played 9+ innings in a controlled scrimmage.
Position players opened the day with an offensive workout, taking live BP on the field. TrackMan and Blast were used to track pre-swing and ball-flight analytics. Players then went through a defensive workout at their position, allowing coaches and scouts to get a feel for their athleticism, movement, and arm strength.
After the workout, North Carolina took on South Carolina in game play. Pitchers threw to live hitters in a controlled environment, allowing PBR Scouts to control pitch count and stress of each inning. Hitters got live looks at pitchers, allowing the coaches and scouts in attendance to further their evaluations after BP, in the live setting.
One of the marquee events of the summer, the 2023 NC/SC Border Battle did not disappoint. Several players boosted their profiles, while others solidified their spot as one of the top prospects in the Carolinas.
