Cross Hit Scout Day Stats

Tim Kay
PBR Tennessee Director of Scouting

The 2017 Cross Hit Scout Day took place on Saturday, November 18th at Cross Hit Sports Academy in Gallatin.  This event included a position player workout, followed by pitchers throwing a live 15-20 pitch pen.  Players were afforded the opportunity to showcase their abilities in front of the PBR Tennessee staff and college coaches in attendance. The following is a look at the top statistical performances from the event.

A quick note on pitcher velocities, these were done at the end of a long workout and consisted of no hitters in box.  Some of these pitchers showed us better velocity in game.  We will make note of that on their individual write-ups.
