Roster Preview: NC/SC Border Battle - Pitchers to Know

Brandon Hall
Mid-Atlantic Scouting Director

The 3rd NC/SC Border Battle will be played at UNC Charlotte’s Robert & Mariam Hayes Stadium on Tuesday June 21st.  The event will feature 2023, 2024, and 2025 grads from North Carolina and South Carolina facing off.  

Position players will open the day with Batting Practice and Infield/Outfield beginning at 9:30am.  From there, three separate scrimmages will be played with players from each state facing off.  Scrimmages will be controlled by PBR staff to keep the day rolling and to manage the stress on pitchers that are in the middle of their summer, still allowing them to showcase against some of the top hitters from the Carolinas.

Below we begin to dive into the scheduled rosters for the event. Below are some arms to know, that are scheduled to attend. These arms are in the current rankings, or could be moving into the rankings with a solid performance on Tuesday.

The NC/SC Border Battle soldout for position players approximately 2 weeks prior to the event’s date.  The final pitching slots were filled 1 week prior to the event.  This event has quickly become one of the hot spots for players to showcase, updating video and stats for their PBR Profile, while also a spot for college coaches to get a full glimpse at players from each state, on the field.

College coaches and pro scouts are welcome to attend the NC/SC Border Battle.  Scout Packets will be provided and updates will be emailed at the conclusion of the event.  Lunch for coaches and scouts in attendance will be provided by PBR.
