North AL Preseason All-State: Statistical Leaderboards


Austin Sharp
Alabama Scouting Director

 

HARTSELLE, AL - The North AL Preseason All-State was held on Saturday, January 6th at Hartselle High School in Hartselle, AL. This event was an invite-only event that consisted of some of the top prospects from the 2024-2028 classes. These players went through extended pro-style workout that included batting practice using Trackman and Blast Motion, ran the 30 yard dash using Swift Performance, and much more. Pitchers were able to throw in simulated bullpens during the workout 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 Saturday.

Continuing off our post-event coverage for this event, we take a look back at some of the leaders from each statistical category recorded from the showcase. Please continue to check back over the next week, as we will release individual scouting reports on each player present at the event.
