Milwaukee Preseason ID: Vizual Edge Scoreboard

On March 19, PBR Wisconsin hosted its largest event on the state’s showcase calendar: the Milwaukee Preseason ID at the MOSH Performance Center in Franklin, Wis. Nearly 200 players from across the state met at the facility just south of Milwaukee to participate in the final Preseason ID event on our winter circuit. This was the second annual Milwaukee ID, and it’s becoming one of the most important events on our winter calendar, too.

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. With the help of our Blast Motion sensors, we analyzed the swing metrics in our Blast Motion Board.

Today, we’ll take a look at the top Vizual Edge scores from the event.

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 with typically show stronger scores, with elite hitters scoring consistently above 87.0 on their Edge Score.
