East Arkansas Preseason ID: Stat Leaderboards


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 jump into the top leaders from the event in the traditional showcase categories with top 60's, fastball velos, exit velos, positional velos, and pop times.
