TrackMan Leader Board: Upstate Mavs Scout Day


Brandon Hall
Mid-Atlantic Executive Director

On Saturday May 22nd, PBR converged onto Big League Camp in Marion, NC where the Upstate Mavs were hosting an organizational weekend.  Part of their organizational weekend was a PBR Scout Day, allowing their players to go through a full pro-style workout, posting numbers and receiving feedback.  Players attending the scout day will receive their stats, a video, advanced analytics from TrackMan, and an evaluation, all hosted on their PBR Profile page.

The day started with pitchers throwing controlled bullpens.  TrackMan was able to track ball flight and give in-depth stats on each arm that threw.  Following the pitchers, the position players ran a laser timed 60 and then went through offensive evaluations, again with TrackMan providing feedback.  The position players finished the day with their defensive workout. All players stats below were collected during the pro-style workout.  Each player will have his workout on video, posted to his profile page in the coming days.

Hard Hit Percentage

TrackMan is able to track and follow exit velocities of each hitter.  Based on the individual's top exit velocity, TrackMan is able to give us a percentage of hard hit balls.  This percentage is based off of each individual hitter's top exit velocity.

Rank Name State School Class Pos Hard Hit %
1 Yates Bland SC Chapin 2022 RHP 83 %
2 Owen Pridgen SC Laurens 2024 1B 71 %
3 Mac Ketchin SC Wando 2022 OF 70 %

Launch Angle Percentage

Based on the ball flight, TrackMan is able to identify each hit as a ground ball, line drive, or fly ball.  While there are many factors as to why a hitter may approach each pitch in a certain way, the overall groupings of BP can give some insight to each hitter's approach.
