East Arkansas Preseason ID: Pitcher's Data Dive


Arkansas Staff

Our final stop around the state on our Preseason ID tour came on February 3rd in Jonesboro for the East Arkansas Preseason ID.  The event featured 22 players from the eastern part of the state from the 2025 class to some up and coming prospects in the 2028 class.  The event featured a pro-style workout with laser timed 60's, BP rounds with Trackman and Blast Motion data collected, defensive evaluations with radar gun readings and pop times, and finished off with bullpens with Trackman ball flight data.  Today we take all the top fastball, slider, curveball, and changeup metrics from bullpens with data captured by Trackman.

We still have spots remaining for our upcoming Preseason All-State on February 18th in Conway.  Request your invitation for our final Preseason event HERE
