AL/TN Unsigned Senior Showcase: Positional Player Reports


PBR Tennessee & Alabama Staff

MADISON, AL - The AL/TN Unsigned Senior Showcase was held on Sunday, November 6th at James Clemens HS in Madison, AL. This event was an open event that consisted of unsigned prospects from the Class of 2023 in Alabama and Tennessee. These players went through extended pro-style workout that included batting practice using Trackman and Blast Motion, participated in defensive evaluations, ran the 60 yard-dash using Swift Performance, and much more. Pitchers threw in bullpens and were able to get numbers and metrics off of our Trackman unit, such as pitch velocity, spin rate, horizontal & vertical movement & much more. There were some players who showed up and continued to build off of prior performances, but there were also some new names who jumped onto our radar with a strong showing on Sunday.

Continuing off our post-event coverage for this event, we take a look at each position player in attendance at the event. Please check back tomorrow as we take a look at all of the pitchers from the event.
