LakePoint Preseason I.D: Pitchers Report

PBR Georgia Staff
Hudson Graham

The LakePoint Preseason I.D. was held January 7th at LakePoint Sports. This event was a great chance to see where the athletes were at after a long off season of hard work. These players went through extended pro-style workout that included batting practice using Trackman and Blast Motion, ran the 60 yard dash using Swift Performance, and much more. Pitchers were able to throw in simulated bullpens during the workout and were able to get numbers and metrics off of our Trackman unit, such as pitch velocity, spin rate, horizontal & vertical movement & much more. There were some players who showed up and continued to build off of prior performances, but there were also some new names who jumped onto our radar with a strong showing on Saturday.

Continuing our post-event coverage for this event, we take a look back at all pitchers that were in attendance at the event.
