Top Prospect Games: Trackman Pitching Leaders


Sammy Esposito
PBR SC Director of Scouting

PBR of South Carolina hosted its Top Prospect Games on August 19th at Charleston Southern University. The event featured players from across the state in the 2024-2027 grad classes. The Top Prospect Games continues to be one of the most popular summer events on the PBR summer schedule with several college coaches in attendance taking a look at the prospects in attendance. 

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, the players where split into to teams and played a controlled game.  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.

Below we begin our breakdown of the players in attendance looking at the top performers in select categories.
