Joliet Preseason I.D.: TrackMan Files


Diego Solares
Staff Writer

On March 28, the PBR Illinois team hosted this first-ever Joliet Preseason I.D. at the new Rhino Baseball Academy in Shorewood, Ill. The event marked the end of our high school winter showcase circuit, and around 120 players from the area participated.

Shortly after the event's conclusion we published a Quick Hits piece highlighting the top performances from the day and followed that up by taking a look at things from a numbers perspective within our Statistical Analysis.

We'll continue to analyze the data gathered from this event today by shining some light on the top analytical performers, thanks to the help of our portable TrackMan units, which you can find below.
