Cam Black-Araujo
Assistant Director, Prep Baseball Canada

On Monday, February 19th the Prep Baseball British Columbia staff hosted it's first showcase of the season with the Abbotsford Preseason ID at Delair Park Indoor Facility in Abbotsford, British Columbia. This event featured over 47 players from the across the province in the 2024 - 2027 classes and allowed our staff an opportunity to get an in-depth look at the players, as well as collect updated metrics via our tech partner TrackMan.

The event also serves as an identifier and qualifier for our Select Series Events such as Future Games (2026), Jr. Future Games (2028/2029), Senior Future Games (2025), West Coast Games (2025/2026) and Best of the West (18U & 15U).

This event featured roughly 40 prospects from the Abbotsford area in the 2024 - 2028 classes and allowed our staff an opportunity to get an in-depth look at the players, as well as collect updated metrics via our tech partners TrackMan and Swift Performance.

Earlier this week we began our post-event coverage within our Statistical Analysis and Pitching Data Dive articles. Today we'll conclude our post-event leaderboards within this article as we take a look at the top hitting metrics, captured by TrackMan, from the Preseason ID in Abbotsford.
