Young Arms Make Noise at Wage Hope Scrimmages

Brandon Hall
Executive Director, PBR NC

PBR was out and on the road this past weekend.  Executive Director of Scouting, Brandon Hall, sat at South Mecklenburg HS to watch 5 games featuring South Meck, West Stanly, West Davidson, and Legion Collegiate (SC).  Each game was a timed 2 hour event, allowing coaches to play with their lineups, positioning, and building pitch counts for multiple arms.

The scrimmages were part of the 5th annual Wage Hope Scrimmages, raising money for the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network.  Proceeds from the gate and concessions went to the cause.
