Statistical Breakdown: Southern Athletics Scout Day


Sammy Esposito
PBR SC Director of Scouting

On Thursday June 15th PBR or South Carolina was on hand at Presbyterian College for a Scout Day with Southern Athletics. The Scout Day featured players from the 2024-2027 Grad Classes. 

The day began with players going through a rotation that involved running a laser timed 60 and taking batting practice on the field with Trackman collecting ball flight data. After batting practice, position players went through a defensive evaluation. The scout day concluded with pitchers throwing a controlled bullpen with Trackman gathering information on each pitch. 

Below we begin our breakdown of the players in attendance. Look for more information to follow in the coming days.
