On Wednesday, October 18th, the PBR Arizona staff hosted it's first PBR JUCO Scout Day of the fall with South Mountain CC, hosted on campus in Phoenix, Arizona. This event featured 24 prospects within the program, both freshman and sophomores, and allowed our staff an opportunity to get an in-depth look at the players within the Cougars program.

Earlier this week, we broke down the top measurable data performers from the event with our Statistical Analysis article. Now, we will take a further in-depth look at the top positional players with the help of our tech partnerships, broken down by the categories down below:

Body Rotation: A swing that has the appropriate relative contributions of body and bat rotations is an efficient and Powerful swing that maintains proper sequencing. An efficient baseball swing is one in which the body creates the initial movements, which is then transferred to the arms and out to the bat, thereby maximizing Bat Speed through this proximal-to-distal kinematic sequencing movement pattern.
