On Sunday, Jan. 30, the PBR Wisconsin team kicked off the 2022 winter showcase circuit with the annual Kenosha Preseason ID showcase at Fielder’s Choice Training Facility in Kenosha, Wis. Nearly 40 players made it out to this event, providing us with updated looks and a new list of players to follow in Wisconsin, as well as a handful of players from just over the Illinois border.

Earlier this week we published Quick Hits highlighting the top prospects of the event by class. We also rolled out a Statistical Analysis, bringing you a quick statistical analysis of those that participated in the event. We then dove deep into the data, looking at the pitch metrics and batted ball numbers from this event inside our TrackMan Files piece. Finally, our staff analyzed the swing metrics collected at the event through our Blast Motion sensors in yesterday's Blast Board.

Today, we'll conclude our post-event content with our brand new Vizual Edge Scoreboard by taking a look at the event's leaders.

The Edge Score is a comprehensive score out of 100 that takes the core-six visual skills into account, providing athletes, parents, coaches and scouts with a benchmark number for assessing an athlete’s overall visual ability. In general the higher the Edge Score, the higher chance of athletic success. Think of the Edge Score as the 'Sixth Metric' in the standard Five-Tools that make up a ball player.

The average Edge Score for the 2020 MLB Draft Class was 79.3 (of hitters who completed a Vizual Edge test). MLB players we've worked typically show stronger scores, with elite hitters scoring consistently above 87.0 on their Edge Score.
