PBR Georgia Staff

PBR Georgia hit the road for its second stop on the Fall Campus Tour on Sunday, October 30th at J.I Clements Stadium on the campus of Georgia Southern. This event featured around 25 prospects from the 2023-2026 classes. Prospects participated in a pro-style workout that included the 60 yard dash, batting practice in and out, and pitcher bullpens.

We started the event analysis with a look at the traditional stats in the form of a "Stats Story". That was followed up by the initial thoughts and reactions from our staff in our "Quick Hits". We jumped right into the player analysis with full reports on all the position players in attendance. Today, we follow that up with the pitcher reports. Keep reading to view the top prospects and best of the rest listed alphabetically.
